IPEX MHF vs U.FL Series Comparison

Recently, we have been asked frequently what is the difference between my U.FL & IPEX cable assembly? What type should I transfer from U.FL to IPEX without any hassles? Are they compatible to my device? Or are they the same?

The difference between U.FL & IPEX

HRS. UFL is the ultra-miniature connector developed by Hirose Company in Japan. The most frequency of use is 6GHz. The cable can be Φ0.81mm~Φ1.37mm , and it has different names according to the cable used.
For example, U.FL-LP(V): Φ0.81mm / U.FL-LP-068:Φ1.13mm / U.FL-LP-066:Φ1.32mm / U.FL-LP-088:Φ1.37mm / U.FL-LP(P)-068 : Φ1. 13mm (gold connector)

MHF1 is compatible with HRS standard U.FL cable assembly.
But MHF 4L is not compatible with HRS standard U.FL, but is suitable for 5G(M.2) Module type.
