i2 Micro iCon is the newest member of VPC's iSeries. VPC developed the low I/O 168 signal
pin connector to serve as a drop-in replacement for 156 pin ZIF connectors and to provide an alternative
solution to MIL-SPEC circular connectors. The i2 Hybrid version offers up to 120 signal and 12 micro coaxial
or micro power positions. The one piece module receiver is the perfect solution for low I/O
applications in a variety of industries. VPC's new right-angle
headers enable direct connection from the i2 receiver to a PCB using solderless compliant pins for easy
Hybrid option offers 120 signal points and 12 micro coax/micro power points
30° cable exit for vertical stackability
0.8” footprint for horizontal stackability
Integrated spring locking tabs
Flying lead options allow you to pin your own configuration
With VPC’s new 84 or 60 pin headers, i2 can directly connect to the PXI card. The header contains solderless compliant (eye of the needle) pins, for ease of use and implementation. Using QuadraPaddle signal contact technology, standard and twin female contacts provide consistent and even connections. i2 connection options including: i2 direct to PCB, i2 to flexprint, i2 to PCB adapter card, and i2 discrete-wired.

i2’s engaging mechanism integrates spring locking tabs that fasten over the latching post for secure engagement. Keying pins and a square locking mechanism ensure even and precise engagement. i2’s 0.8” footprint allow horizontal stackability. The 30º angled cable exit reduces the height required by the connector, allowing more space in front of the rack for instrumentation and minimizing the vertical space between connectors in a multi-connector panel layout.
