Hirose U.FL connector (Equiv. to IPEX MHF connector)

Hirose U.FL connector (Equiv. to IPEX MHF connector)

Information

U.FL connector is made by Hirose, and is equivalent of IPEX MHF connector. Hirose U.FL cable connector can be terminated with 1.13mm, 1.32mm, 1.37mm, 0.81mm RF cable to be U.FL pigtail or U.FL cable for RF signal transmission.

Hirose U.FL connector is designed to have two mating heights. One is 2.5mm mated height U.FL connector, and another is 2.0mm mated height. U.FL connector has silver plating and can provide stable performance at 0~6GHz. Nowadays, U.FL cable assembly and U.FL receptacle are commonly used in space limited device like PDA, NB, smartphone, Game device.

Equivalent of Hirose U.FL connector is available. The most compatible one is IPEX MHF and MHF II connector. Having same working performance but lower cost and shorter lead time, IPEX MHF cable has be commonly accepted and used.

We can provide U.FL connector and IPEX connector per customer requests. If you want to know the difference in cost and lead time, please contact us.
