Riser card functions
The riser card addresses the problem that functional modules (such as NICs, HBA cards, and graphics cards) cannot be directly installed on the mainboard due to space limits of a chassis (2 U or 4 U). You insert the riser card into a slot (non-standard PCIe slot) on the mainboard. The riser card provides one or multiple standard PCIe slots for installing functional modules. The riser card must be secured to the board by an iron case. Functional modules can be in full-height, half-height, full-length, or half-length.
