JFPC Schematic (PDF)

back to top


Q1: I need a RoHS version of the mating connector. Can you suggest a vendor?
A1: Use Oupiin 2434-08TD1T (www.oupiin.com) for top mount, or 2434-08TD2T for bottom mount. By the time you read this all of these connectors you purchase from Oupiin will be RoHS.

Q2: Since you are out of JFPCs, and have permanently discontinued them, how can I make my own with the FPC connector you sent us?
A2: Refer to the JFPC schematic in the downloads section above, and follow the table below:

Signal FPC Pin IDC Cable Wire
VCC 1 2
TEST 2 8
GND 3 9
TCK 4 7
TMS 5 5
TDI 6 3
TDO/TDI 7 1 (Red)
RST/NMI 8 11

Place the FPC connector on a table with the pins on the table and pointing away from you, as shown in the JFPC picture at the top of this page. The connector in the picture is brown with a white slide, but the connector we sent you is tan with a brown slide.

In this configuration the brown slide will be pointing toward you and against the table (brown-down). Pin 1 is the pin on the left.

On the 14-pin IDC JTAG cable, pin 1 is red.
