As one of the smallest and most popular connectors in the MHF range, the I-PEX MHF 4 & MHF 4L are high frequency (DCto 6GHz), tiny micro coaxial connectors. MHF 4 has a 1.2mm mated height suitable for use with 0.81mmø cable. MHF 4L mated profile is slightly taller at 1.4mm with use of 1.13mmø cable, but remains a great option for compact designs. In comparison to the I-PEX MHF I variant at 2.5mm, it is less than half the stack height and is an excellent option for more space limited designs.
I-PEX MHF 4 & 4L connectors are completely intermateable and a cost effective alternative with other types, for example, customers are able to plug a cable with I-PEX MHF 4 into a Murata HSC PCB connector. This is particularly helpful as the Murata HSC connector is now under obsolescence.
The rise of IoT enabled devices has led to a surge in demand for wireless modules as they play a key role in the ecosystem. I-PEX MHF 4 & 4L micro connectors are very popular for this application and are quickly replacing older Hirose U.FL and I-PEX MHF types found in favour of the smaller form factor. This makes MHF 4 the connector of choice for achieving a slimmer design in new module designs.
GradConn offers a wide variety of cable assemblies, solutions to choose from, including waterproof IP67 & IP68 cables and non-waterproof industry standard types like SMA, TNC & BNC interfaces utilising I-PEX MHF 4 & 4L connecting to the PCB.
