I will present the front-end readout ASIC for the High-Luminosity Upgrade of the CMS Strip Tracker. The CMS Binary Chip 2 is a full-scale prototype ASIC with 254 channels, capable of identifying high transverse-momentum trigger primitives by correlating hits between the two closely-spaced silicon strip sensors of the Tracker module. I will present the performance of the chip, together with the plans for its final version and an overview of current R&D activities, which include a first beam test of a prototype module and preliminary irradiation testing.
