Meaning of TALL CARD

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

An expansion card for the ibm pc at. These can be larger than ibm pc or ibm pc xt cards because the AT case is bigger.

When IBM introduced the PS/2 model 30 (its last gasp at supporting the isa) they made the case lower and many industry-standard tall cards wouldn't fit. This was felt to be a reincarnation of the connector conspiracy, done with less style.

See also short card.
