Sourcing ACES 51688-0510M-001 for the touchpad connector


I’m trying to connect the mainboard to a set of peripherals. I have a touchpad cable, which attaches to the mainboard nicely, but I need the connector for the other end of the cable (that would normally connect to the touchpad–listed in git as ACES 51688-0510M-001). I can’t seem to source this part. Does anyone have any ideas? It’s not a normal FFC with straight pins (it has a sort of honeycomb pattern), so I don’t know how to source an alternative part. Thanks!

It may be easier to skip using the Touchpad Cable and directly interface to the connector that is on the Mainboard. For example: MyKiCad/Laptop mods/framework_input_brkt at master · CRImier/MyKiCad · GitHub


If you 100% want it I might be able to find a source.


Thank you so much! Using another of your posts ( in case anyone finds this page via google) I was able to verify and order the required part. And thanks to this post ([SOLVED] Anyone know how to ID a socket? - #8 by mrwm), I can secure a breakout board to test things out. :smiley:

Thank you! I’m going to try to just use the mainboard connector instead. It will likely be a cleaner project this way.
