ICC’s Metral® 2000 Series is a high speed 2mm backplane connector system of vertical headers. The 2000 Series features a unique stripline structure. Apart from this stripline structure, it is similar to the ICC Standard Metral® Connector. This stripline structure allows the Metral® 2000 Series to have improved signal performance when routed in either a single-ended or a differential pair configuration.

The Metral® 2000 Series is available in 5x6 and 8x12 module sizes for midplane applications. The system also features dedicated ground rows. For the 5-row connector, the dedicated ground row is the 3rd row. For the 8-row connector, the dedicated ground rows are the 3rd and 5th rows. Two, Three & Four-module monoblocks for the 5-row connector are available.

Metral® 2000 Series connectors are designed to conveniently stack end-to-end with other ICC Metral® products and are mateable with Metral® 1000/4000 Series Receptacles.
