Optionalized Card Retainer

      Disclosed is a system for building of optionalized card
assemblies.

      Optionalization of card assemblies is accomplished by providing
a base card stiffener with provisions for additive features.  The
figure shows a card that will be contained by a card stiffener.  The
card stiffener includes provision (notches and slots) that are used
to retain various additive features or options.  Additive features
shown include a component cover, a lead cover, and a top card
connector mounting bracket.  Not shown in the Figure are other
possible additive features, such as insertion/extraction latches and
partial card cassettes.
