HSMC Interface

Altera developed the specification for the HSMC interface, which is based on the Samtec mechanical connector, to define and standardize the interface between optional daughter cards and host boards. This specification outlines both the electrical and mechanical properties of the interface between daughter card and host. You can also create your own HSMC interface compatible daughter cards.
