Quantaflex ELTM  Design Guide


Conductive Pads

Quantaflex TM lamps can be provided with two conductive pads on the rear surface of the lamp, or on the rear surface of an extended flex tail.

Connection is generally accomplished by one of various types of pressure connection.

When the conductive pads are on the end of a flex tail, this type of connection is suitable for use with low insertion force (LIF) or zero insertion force (ZIF) connectors.

Alternatively, connection is accomplished by pressing against spring load tangs or other projections (such as those used in flashlights to connect to batteries).

In some applications, a small amount of z-axis adhesive is used to make contact between the conductive pads on the EL lamp and mating conductive pads on a circuit board.
