The 3M™ Ultra Hard Metric (UHM) Socket Connector is the industry’s first fully-shielded 2mm hard metric (HM) connector designed for more than 7 Gbps backplane performance when used with unshielded industry standard 2mm HM backplane headers.
The UHM socket is designed to be intermateable to 2mm HM IEC 61076-4-101 headers and is fully compatible with 2mm HM PCB footprints. The 3M™ Ultra Hard Metric (UHM) Connector is the industry’s lowest crosstalk 2mm Hard Metric connector. Drop the connector into your 2mm Hard Metric, CompactPCI® or VME backplane designs and get more than 7 Gbps system performance. It’s a quick and seamless way to enhance your system’s performance to support high speed signals such as PCIExpress, SAS/SATA, Rapid IO, GigE and USB. It uses the same PCB footprint as 2mm Hard Metric connectors, saving you the expense and time of re-spinning a board.
