This could be a Fairchild CPU module. Such a module would contain the
CPU/FPU chip and two MMU chips (one MMU for data and one for code).
I think the processor manual even contains a description of this module.
People were supposed to buy the module and not the single chips.

This is a FPGA and probably implements the bus interface.
