It is a SASI card (the precursor to SCSI) intended for use with the
"Sider" hard drive.

Siders came in various sizes, up to 40 megs, I believe. Their major
benefit (I use one on my //e) is that they came with partitioning
software allowing you to boot into DOS, ProDOS, CP/M or Pascal. This
is a Very nice feature.
