Here is a guy knows it.

It's a plain MIPS box whose design was derived from model 2020
("i2000" or "Jupiter workstation") of MIPS Computer system.
The design was modest, not on an edge of that time; LANCE, AIC
SCSI w/o DMA and NEC uPD72001 serial. It should be just ok to
treat it as a NetBSD/mipsco variant.
