Hi,

my girlfriend has ZTE USB UMTS pen, branded with an operator brand from my country (Portugal) and the model of this pen is MF632, I've searched a lot in Google but I had no success obtaining the connector information and I need this information, obviously to add an external UMTS antenna (she is working at a incredibly low coverage area... on the country...).

My guesses where that it is an CRC9 connector, but I would like your opinions before I spend money on an adapter.


Cheers.

Ohhh its a pen-drive sized modem! I googled it and didn't see any 'pens' (I'm slow...). Ok, well, for 3G, the frequency is roughly 2.1Ghz. I'm guessing because its rather a 'big' standard, they may have used a custom connector for the antenna. Many highly miniaturized >1GHz solutions use U.FL SMT connectors.

HRS (HIROSE)|U.FL-R-SMT(01)|RECEPTACLE, SMT, U.FL | Farnell United Kingdom

These are found in bluetooth, and Wlan cards, and I've used em for a couple of projects, simply because I have a few on some scrap laptop WLAN cards, and the cable assemblies/adapters are cheap.

Without a picture, I can only speculate.
