U.FL Cables & Adapters

We offer two options of thickness of cable for U.FL cables:

1.13mm mini-coaxial cable (50 Ohm): This is a very thin and flexible cable, with a black jacket. When connecting U.FL connector to a jack on a miniPCI card or board, sometimes the tight space requires the use of 1.13mm cable, because it is very thin and flexible: It is not always necessary to use 1.13mm cable, but on occasion it is necessary to use 1.13mm cable, to prevent the U.FL connector from popping off the U.FL jack.

LMR-100-equivalent cable-type: This is a low-loss coax option for U.FL but not for MHF4 or W.FL.  LMR-100 cable is double-shielded, low-loss and very flexible/easily bendable coax with black jacket. The double-shielding is a major factor in the higher quality of this cable, which translates into lower loss/better performance. Has the same or better signal-loss-per-meter and flexibility as LMR100, and less attenuation (signal loss) than RG174 and RG178. The higher quality of the cable of this antenna translates into lower loss/better performance. Cable is equivalent to LMR-100 in thickness.   Since the LMR-100 equivalent coax has lower signal loss:  If this cable works for you without the U.FL connectors popping off the jacks, then the thicker one is the better solution.  You can use a hot glue gun to secure the jack onto the PCB, in which case, of course, the thicker cable will not be a problem:  This is the best way.

We can make special orders of U.FL cables with either LMR-100 equivalent (for lower signal loss) or 1.13mm cable, for better flexibility.

U.FL Connectors' Gender is confusing because a U.FL jack, such as you would find on a miniPCI male wireless card or board is the male U.FL connector. So U.FL gender is an exception to the rule for most other RF connector types, for which "jack" is synonymous with "female connector."  See the photo at the top-left of the page:  U.FL male and female.

UFL is a tiny radio frequency connector that is applicable for high frequency signals up to 6GHz band.  They have a wide range of applications as antenna cable connectors, most commonly for applications in which space is a key consideration, such as embedded systems, including as the antenna jack on MiniPCI cards and as GPS antenna connectors.

Male UFL connectors are highly rigid, as they need to be embedded directly on to a circuit board. They take only about 9 mm2 in space. Female UFL connectors come as the termination on an antenna cable.  They can be used for up to about 30 mating incidences, after which they will have deteriorated or been damaged, and a replacement is required.
