A little. I've never seen this particular board, but have a short
description of it in a data book. It's not quite ten years old :-)

The i960 is a rather nice 32-bit RISC architecture; the 80960SA is at the
bottom end of the family, lacking floating point and MMU, and having a
16-bit external data bus.

The board you have has 1/2M to 4M DRAM, some EPROM, possibly two flash,
two serial ports, one parallel port (input only), Canon print engine
interface, & processor signals brought out (presumably to the large white
connector). The EPROMs most likely contain a monitor that works over one
of the serial ports. I can't remember whether you can do anything with
just a terminal or whether you need particular host software.

Since some i960s are still in production, you can most likely get
information and software from Intel.
