Idea
A split hypercover is a cofibrant resolution of a representable in the projective local model structure on simplicial presheaves $[C^{op}, sSet]_{proj,loc}$ over a site $C$ .

It is a hypercover satisfying an extra condition that roughly says that it is degreewise freely given by representables.

Definition
Regard $X \in C$ under the Yoneda embedding as an object $X \in [C^{op}, sSet]_{proj,loc}$ . Then a morphism $(Y \to X) \in [C^{op}, sSet]$ is a split hypercover of $X$ if

$Y$ is a hypercover in that

$Y$ is degreewise a coproduct of representables ,

$Y = \int^{[n] \in \Delta} \Delta[n] \cdot \coprod_{i_n} U_{i_n} \;\,,
\;\;\; with \{U_{i_n} \in C\}$ ;

with $Y \to X$ regarded as a presheaf of augmented simplicial set s, for all $n \in \mathbb{N}$ the morphism $Y_{n+1} \to (\mathbf{cosk}_n Y)_{n+1}$ into the $n+1$ -cells of the $n$ -coskeleton is a local epimorphism with respect to the given Grothendieck topology on $C$

$Y$ is split in that the image of the degeneracy maps identifies with a direct summand in each degree.

Properties
The splitness condition on the hypercover is precisely such that $Y$ becomes a cofibrant object in $[C^{op}, sSet]_{proj,loc}$ , according to the characterization of such cofibrant objects described here .

Examples
Over the site CartSp , the Cech nerve of an open cover becomes split as a height-0 hypercover precisely if the cover is a good open cover .
