   This is definitely not an XMI board...XMI boards are about half this  
size.  The handle on top and the number of connectors at the bottom  
suggests an earlier 8000-series non-BI board, like from an 8700 or 8800  
class machine.

   Part numbers off the chips won't do you any good...many of them are  
custom gate arrays.  I've emailed him and asked for the board number.   
I will share any information that I receive.
