Introduction to the 85011 U.FL calibration kit

The U.FL connector is a minature RF connector designed for applications up to 6 GHz where there is not the space for larger connectors such as SMA. Typically U.FL connectors are used inside laptop computers, routers, GPS receivers, portable medical devices, and many consumer devices. The U.FL connector is often used on antennas, which mate to a PCB. In a number of instances, especially with antennas, a VNA is used for impedance matching, as the proximity of the antennas to other objects mean its performance can't be assumed from the data sheet.

Normally the U.FL connector is designed for a limited number of mating cycles, but the Kirkby Microwave 85011 U.FL calibration and verification kit uses low retension force design so the lifetime is estimated at 500 cycles, which makes it practical to produce a VNA calibration kit.

The kit includes all the components necessary to do 1 port and 2 port calibrations, as well as to verify the calibration to ensure it is working properly. The kit includes:

Purchasing the 85011 U.FL calibratation and verification kit

The 6 GHz U.FL kit may be purchased in several ways. The prices vary somewhat, depending on where bought, the method of payment, the currency, due to the commision charged by various bodies (banks, Paypal, eBay etc). If a proforma invoice or formal quote is needed, please let us know and we will produce one.

The kit is available in a black or yellow case. Customers who purchase our SMA kit, may like to purchase one of each colour to distinguish them easily, as the same size box is used for each.

It is ESSENTIAL we have a telephone number for the courier. We normally use UPS or FedEx, both of which require a telephone number before we can book the courier. If there are any problems with delivery, the courier will usually pphone you.

eBay

This is the most expensive way to purchase the kit, as we need to pay both eBay and PayPal fees, so the costs are highest. But you can purchase the 85011 kit on eBay if you wish. The appropiate shipping fee will be calculated based on your location. Currently the kit is only available on eBay in GBP, but we will add a kit in USD if someone wishes.

PayPal, in GBP

You will still get the full Buyer Protection of Paypal, but a lower price than on eBay, as we avoid eBay fees. PayPal payments are sent to drkirkby@kirkbymicrowave.co.uk This will happen automatically. Please be sure to select the correct pull-down menu for the shipping location, as prices vary depending on the location. We usually ship by UPS or FedEx, but we are aware that for some sometimes this is not the best choice for customers, so if you wish us to use the post office, or EMS we will do so. But we prefer to use UPS or FedEx.
