I FIG] FIG.6- Ll 30 INVENTOR 44 Lawrence R. Travis United States Patent 3,325,769 SEPARABLE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT ASSEMBLY Lawrence R. Travis, Pitcairn, Pa.', assignor, by mesne assignments, to Rogers Corporation, a corporation of Massachusetts Filed Sept. 25, 1964, Ser. No. 399,217 Claims. (Cl. 339-176) The present invention relates to electrical circuit assemblies for the termination and connection of electrical conductors, and more particularly to electrical circuit assemblies for use with flat flexible electrical connection conductors.

Flat flexible cables in which a number of usually flat conductors are'disposed and bonded between suitable plastic insulating materials may be used to advantage in a great number of applications. One of the problems of utilizing such flat flexible cables is that of providing suitable connection or termination of the cable to other electrical circuitry. A simple, economical, and reliable electrical termination system has been disclosed in copending application Ser. No. 352,156, filed Mar. 16, 1964, and assigned to the same assignee as the present application, which adequately solves the termination problems usually associated with flexible cables.

The most common situation for termination of a flat flexible cable is to have a unitary connector at the end thereof which fits into a mating receptacle. In certain situations it would be highly advantageous to have the capability of providing a multiple connector assembly in which various of the individual conductors with the associated contacts are available for connection at different receptacle areas. Thus, by such an assembly, conductors, one or more, would have their separate connectors available for connection at a given receptacle area, while other conductors, with their associated connectors, could be provided at other connecting areas.

It is therefore an object of the present invention to provide a new and improved connector assembly utilizing a readily adaptable connector or terminating device.

It is a further object of the present invention to provide a new and improved connector assembly utilizing a connecting or terminating device which may be readily separated for different circuit applications.

It is a further object of the present invention to provide a new and improved connector assembly for use with flat flexible cable in which a connecting or terminating device is utilized which is readily separable to provide separate connectors for the various conductors of the cable.

Broadly, the above cited objects are accomplished by providing electrical connector assembly for use with flexible cable by providing a formed termination or connector member which is frangible to permit the ready separation of one or more of the conductors.

These and other objects and advantages of the present invention will become more apparent when considered in view of the following specification and drawings in which:

3,325,769 Patented June 13, 1967 FIGURE 9 is a three-dimensional view of the connector assembly as provided herein showing various conductor members separated to provide individual contact members, and

FIGURE 10 is a three-dimensional view of another form of the present invention;

Referring to FIGURES 1 and 2, a section of flat flexible cable is shown having a plurality of elongated electrical conductors 10 sandwiched between two electrically insulating layers 12 and 14. The conductors 10, for example, may have a rectangular cross section as shown and comprise copper. One or both of the insulating layers 12 and 14 may, for instance, comprise a film of an aromatic polyirnide or aromatic polyimide-imide resin. To secure and bond the conductors 10 between the layers 12 and 14, a flexible epoxy adhesive may be used. For further details as to the process and materials used in the fabrication of the flexible cable reference is made to the above copending application.

Between the conductors 10 are insulating portions 16, which are parallel to the conductors 10 and thus separate the conductors 10 so as to provide separate electrical circuits through each of the conductors. Slits 18 may be cut back a predetermined distance into the insulating channel 16 from the end 20 of the flexible cable. The slits 18 permit the separating of the various individual conductors 10 at the end 20 as will be described below.

In FIGURES 3, 4 and 5, a mandrel 22 is shown about which one end of the flexible cable is wrapped. The flexible cable is secured about the mandrel with, for example, a suitable epoxy resin. The mandrel 22 includes a plurality of flat portions 24 which correspond to the respective conductors 10 of the flexible cable and over which the conductors 10 are placed. Between the flat portions 24 are web portions 26 which have a thin cross sectional area. The mandrel 22 may comprise a plastic insulating material. The web portions 26 are designed to have a thin cross section so as to be frangible so that the various flat portions 24 may be separated by the breaking of the web portion 26. The web portions 26 need only be thick enough to permit the flowing of the plastic material during its molding process. With the conductors 10 of the flexible cable fitting over the flat portions 24 of the mandrel 22 and the insulating channels 18 fitting over the frangible web portions 26 and the cable secured to the mandrel, the cable is ready for molding into a connector or termination member 28 which is shown in FIGURES 6 and 7.

Referring to these figures, a formed connector or termination member 28 is shown which may comprise a plastic insulating material and which is molded directly over the mandrel 22 after the cable has been secured to the mandrel. The connector member 28 comprises a plurality of contact receiving portions 30 which are connected by a plurality of frangible tab portions 32. The termination member 28 also has an optimal raised back portion 34, better seen in FIG. 7, which serves as a means for gripping the connector member 28 for inserting or with drawing it from another connector or for mounting of an interfacial seal. In each of the contact receiving portions of the termination member 28, a contact opening 36 is provided. The contact receiving portions and openings 36 therein are so aligned to be in position over the respective conductors 10 of the cable.

After the formed termination member has been molded directly over the mandrel 22 with the cable secured thereto, the insulation appearing on the outside of the insulating film layer 12 is removed by a chemical process. The areas exposed by the contact openings 36 establish contact areas. These contact areas are then electroplated, for example with gold, to provide a good electrical contact structure 38 as is well known in the art. The chemical removal and electroplating processes are discussed in the above copending application. FIGURE 8 shows the contact structure 38 appearing through an opening 36 with the molded connector member 28 fitting therearound to provide a one piece connector and contact assembly. A locking lug 40 is molded into the termination member 28 so that a locking structure may be fitted over the lug 40 when a secure connector is desired or for the utilization of an adapter connector. I

The frangible tab portions 32 of the formed connector member 28 are disposed over the Web portions 26 of the mandrel 22. The tab portions 32 are so molded as to have 'a cross section thin enough only to permit the plastic insulating material to flow therethrough during the molding process. Using such a thin web tab portion thus permits the ready breaking through of the insulating material thereof to easily separate the various contact receiving portions 30 of the termination member 28.

In order to provide a single conductor and connector member, as shown in FIGURE 8, it is only necessary to break through the tab portions 32 of the connector member 28 and through the frangible web portions 26 of the mandrel 22. This could be easily done since, as described above, the web and tab portions are designed to be relatively thin to permit such separation. The slits 18, see FIGURE 1, would then serve to permit such separation of one of the conductors with its associated connector member 28 to any desired length. Each separated connector would have its own contact portion 38 which would appear through the contact opening 36 to permit connection to various electrical fixtures.

FIGURE 9 shows a flexible cable assembly in which three connector members 42, 44 and 46 are shown broken from an original unitary structure. The three connectors 42, 44 and 46 are broken from a unitary connector member to provide, respectively, a one contact, a two contact, and a three contact connector structure. The flexible cable is shown slit back away from the connectors 42, 44 and 46 so that these connectors may be inserted into various female receptacles. A unitary connector member 50, which maybe an unbroken member fabricated as described herein, is shown connected to the other end of the flexible cable.

In FIG. 10 is shown another form of the connector assembly as taught herein. The connector assembly as shown takes the form of a female assembly with a contact structure 58 appearing within a contact receiving structure 60 which as aperture 62 therein for receiving a male connector. A frangible web member 64 connects adjoining contact receiving members and permits the ready separation of the various contacts as described above.

It can, thus, be seen by such an assembly that a readily adaptable flexible cable connector assembly is provided which may be used in a great variety of situations and may easily be changed to accommodate a great number of circuit applications. Also it should be noted that the various individual contact elements could be cut or sawed apart after the assembly has been fabricated, if made necessary by the use of thicker areas between the conductors.

Although the present invention has been described with a certain degree of particularity, it should be understood that the present disclosure has been made only by way of example and that numerous changes in the details of constructure, fabrication and the combination and arrangement of parts, elements and materials may be resorted to without departing from the scope and spirit of the present invention.
