Twisting of Touch cable

Hi,

I am using  DT070BTFT-PTS1 part with LCD cable of 50mm in my project. The Display and Touch  connector is placed on top. We having problem with directly inserting the touch cable to connector as the connector is top
contact and its expecting cable with bottom contact. Is it fine if we twist the touch cable and connect. Please confirm

Hi Shifali,

Thank you for reaching out through the Displaytech forum. The LCD and Touch connectors are very sensitive items. We generally recommend to avoid stressing the FPC via twisting/bending/etc in a mass production environment. An option is to tool a custom FPC design that mechanically interfaces with your PCBA without needing to twist the cable. The MOQ to pursue a custom FPC design is 2,500 pcs for the DT070BTFT-PTS1 LCD. Please contact me directly if you would like to discuss this option in more detail: Derek@seacomp.com.

Best,
