Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a manufacturing method for a novel surface-mount flexible flat cable, capable of surely manufacturing a high-detail surface-mount flexible flat cable at a low cost. SOLUTION: Conductors 1 are sandwiched between insulating films 2 made of polyethylene terephthalate with a nonflammable polyester adhesive while the conductors 1 are bonded with a conductive adhesive 6 to terminals 4 of an integrated circuit 3 mounted on surfaces of the conductors 1 by using bore holes bored by laser as contact parts. This dispenses with expensive film for the insulating film 2 and dispenses with joining the conductors 1 to the terminals 4 by soldering. Therefore, the high-detail surface-mount FCC can be easily provided at a low cost.

Description

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a flexible flat cable used for a wiring of a movable portion of an electronic / electric device or a jumper wire between circuits, and more particularly to a surface mount flexible having an integrated circuit integrally mounted on the surface thereof. The present invention relates to a flat cable and a method for manufacturing the flat cable.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art Conventionally, such a flexible flat cable (hereinafter referred to as FFC) is composed of a plurality of solder-plated conductors 1, 1... Arranged in parallel as shown in FIG. Sandwich it from above and below with 2,
It is a tape-shaped electric wire obtained by laminating with a hot roll, and its thickness is generally very thin, generally about 0.1 to 0.3 mm.

[0003] Such an FFC has not only flexibility but also excellent bending resistance.
The number of cases where a D-ROM pickup unit wiring is used as a substitute for a flexible printed circuit board has been rapidly increasing.
The development of a high-detail FFC with a gap of 0.1 mm and a gap of 0.1 mm) is also in progress.

Further, such an FFC and an integrated circuit disposed on a substrate are generally joined via a connector provided on the substrate. As shown in FIGS. 6 and 7, so-called surface-mounted FFCs, in which the integrated circuit 3 is directly mounted on the surface of the FFC, have also appeared in order to cope with miniaturization of equipment.

[0005]

When mounting the integrated circuit 3 on the surface of the FFC, as shown in FIGS. 8 and 9, the conductors 1, 1,... In order to join between them, perforations 5, 5,... Are previously formed at predetermined positions on the plastic film 2 by pressing or the like, and contacts are formed so as to expose the conductors 1, 1,. Each terminal in 4, 5, ...
Are inserted and brought into contact with each other to join them together by soldering.

However, when adopting such a manufacturing method, it is necessary to use a material having excellent heat resistance as the plastic film 2 and the adhesive, for example, a resin such as a polyimide form with an epoxy adhesive. Since these resins are generally expensive, there is a disadvantage that the material cost increases as the overall length of the FFC increases.

For this reason, at present, as shown in FIGS. 10 and 11, only the plastic film 2 where the integrated circuit 3 is mounted is made of expensive polyimide with an epoxy adhesive, and the other parts are inexpensive polyester adhesive. Polyethylene terephthalate is used, but when using different kinds of films like this, it is necessary to bond the two each time by soldering, and instead there is a problem that the number of manufacturing processes increases and it is difficult to reduce costs. .

On the other hand, when the multi-terminal integrated circuit 3 is mounted on the surface of the FFC, the width of the FFC is determined by the conductors 1, 1 of the FFC.
The pitch is multiplied by the number of terminals of the integrated circuit 3 (F
FC width dimension = FFC conductor pitch x number of integrated circuit terminals).
Therefore, the multi-terminal integrated circuit 3 for narrow space equipment
It is necessary to reduce the pitch (high detail) of the FFC in order to surface-mount the contact. However, as described above, the contact portion (perforation) of the plastic film 2 that joins the terminals of the integrated circuit 3
Is formed by press perforation before lamination, so that there is a problem that it is difficult to stably form a contact in the case of a high-detail FFC having a pitch of 0.5 mm or less.

The present invention has been devised in order to effectively solve such a problem, and an object of the present invention is to provide a highly detailed surface-mounted flexible flat cable and a low-cost and reliable surface-mounted flexible flat cable. The present invention provides a method for manufacturing a novel surface-mount flexible flat cable that can be manufactured at a low cost.

[0010]

In order to solve the above-mentioned problems, according to the present invention, one or more parallel conductors are sandwiched by an insulating film with an adhesive and terminals are provided on the surface thereof. In a surface mount flexible flat cable on which an integrated circuit is mounted, polyethylene terephthalate is used as the insulating film, a flame-retardant polyester adhesive is used as the adhesive, and the terminal between the terminal of the integrated circuit and the conductor is used. Are bonded with a conductive adhesive using the perforations of the insulating film perforated by a laser as contact points.

That is, the present invention uses an inexpensive polyethylene terephthalate film with a polyester adhesive, which has been conventionally used as an insulating film with an adhesive, and forms a contact portion by perforating the film with a laser. At the same time, the terminals of the integrated circuit and the conductor are joined at the contact portions with a conductive adhesive.

Accordingly, it is not necessary to use an expensive polyimide film with an epoxy adhesive as in the prior art, so that the material cost can be greatly reduced. Also,
Since the contact portion is formed by piercing with a laser, it is possible to easily perform high-precision piercing.
A stable contact can be created even for a high-detail FFC with a pitch of 5 mm or less.

A specific method for manufacturing such a surface mount flexible flat cable is described in claim 2 below.
As shown in the figure, a single or a plurality of parallel conductors are sandwiched between a polyethylene terephthalate film coated with a flame-retardant polyester adhesive in advance, and the surface of the polyethylene terephthalate film is irradiated with a laser to irradiate the inside thereof. Perforate so that the conductor is exposed, and then
The terminal of the integrated circuit is inserted into the perforation, and this is joined to the conductor side inside with a conductive adhesive. By adopting this manufacturing method, a highly detailed surface having a pitch of 0.5 mm or less can be obtained. Even a mounted flexible flat cable can be manufactured at low cost and with high accuracy.

[0014]

Even a contact portion having an m pitch (a conductor width of 0.2 mm and a gap of 0.1 mm) can be easily and accurately formed. Second, since the integrated circuit 3 is attached by using a conductive adhesive 6, 6,... Instead of using solder as in the related art,
Since heat resistance is no longer required for the insulating films 2 and 2, it is not necessary to use expensive polyimide with an epoxy adhesive, and it is possible to use an inexpensive resin such as polyethylene terephthalate as it is. Even a high-detail surface mount FFC with a pitch of 0.5 mm or less, which has been increasingly used recently, can be easily and inexpensively manufactured.
