The 36mm 16-way 0.5mm-pitch Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) is a key component of the smôl ecosystem, a range of miniature processor boards, peripheral boards, power boards, and accessories. The FPC is designed to interconnect smôl boards side by side and features an offset (step) of 18mm. This unique design allows the boards to be stacked one on top of the other, providing a compact and efficient solution for various applications.
smôl is an innovative ecosystem known for its small size and minimal current draw. This makes it an ideal choice for applications such as wildlife tracking or discrete long-term monitoring. The 16-way 0.5mm-pitch FPCs are used to connect one smôl board to the next, offering a truly compact solution for any project.
Sparkfun continually expands the smôl ecosystem with new boards. If you can't find a specific board for your project, you can request it on the SparkX Forum. This is part of Sparkfun's commitment to bringing the most cutting-edge technology to its customers as soon as it becomes available.
As an experimental product from SparkX, the 36mm 16-way 0.5mm-pitch FPC has been tested but comes with no guarantees. For support or to ask a question, you can visit the Sparkfun forum.
The FPC features a 36mm flexible printed circuit, a 16-way, 0.5mm pitch, stiffeners on both ends, and a single-sided, Z-shaped design with an offset of 18mm. It's a unique and innovative product that brings a new level of compactness and efficiency to your projects.
