In computing, an expansion card (Also called adapter card or accessory card) is a printed circuit board that can be inserted into an electrical connector, or expansion slot (also referred to as a bus slot) on a computers motherboard, backplane or riser card to add functionality to a computer system.

This type of card allow the capacities and interfaces of a computer system to be adjusted to the tasks it will perform. For example, a high-speed multi-channel data acquisition system would be of no use to a personal computer used for bookkeeping, but might be a key part of a system used for industrial process control. Expansion cards can often be installed or removed in the field, allowing a degree of user customization for particular purposes. Some expansion cards take the form of “daughterboards” that plug into connectors on a supporting system board.
