Difference between 'ffc' cable and 'fpc' cable?

Does anyone know the difference between an FFC cable and an FPC Cable?.....thanks.

    Flat Flexible Cable (FFC's) is made up of thin

    rectangular copper conductors laminated between

    two layers of polyester insulation.

    Flexible Printed Circuits (FPC's) are similar in construction

    to the FFC except that copper film is chemically

    etched to produce a specific pattern. These are custom made for each manufacturers specs. This means this type cable is nearly irreplacable with of the shelf items without modification (So be careful!).

    I believe FPC's are what we are seeing with a variable pitch on each end. This would also make sense because from what I have researched FPC's are more fragile than the standard FFC cable and these seem to be the cables that are breaking in members monitors.

    A new type which we hopefully wont see much off is the membrane FFC. These have a carbon/silver paste forming the trace and are very easily damaged.

    The mating cycles for this material can be quite low. So if you run into this type be very cautious about handling it.

    While FFC/FPC cable can are much more durable than they appear, several precautions must be observed.

    At this point average speed of DSL is less than that of an average Cable connection. DSL claims that latency on DSL is less (quicker response) than on Cable but it's not substantial. Price on the other hand goes in favor of DSL. DSL right now is much cheaper than Cable in most areas. I've have used both DSL and Cable and I am in favor of Cable because of the higher speed but the biggest deciding factor for most people is ... reliability of service. I will give up higher bandwidth to have reliable and consistent service. I changed from DSL to Cable due to that reason. (My local DSL provider expanded too quickly and couldn't keep their network up and reliability suffered as a result.)

    fpc is short for flex printed circuit,and ffc is short for flex flat cable.the production process is totally different.For more detail.please ask our engineers for help.
