Riser card

Riser card

Riser card is a printed circuit board that picks up a multitude of signal lines (often bussed) via a single connector (usually an edge connector) on a main board and distributes them via dedicated connectors on the card.

Riser cards are often used to allow adding expansion cards to a system encased in a low-profile case where the height of the case doesn't allow for a perpendicular placement of the full-height expansion card.
