Baydel were (are?) latterly quite well known for RAID systems; prior to
that they made (amongst other things) QBus floppy controllers, to
connect to SA800/850 drives. I have a couple of single-density ones
that emulate an RXV11 or a pair of RXV11s. I'd guess this board is an
emulation of an RXV21, to connect to SA800/850 drives. Power it up,
and see if it responds to the RXV21 addresses.

BTW, I found Baydel quite helpful when I wanted some information about
mine (labelled F11-311) -- but that was a decade ago and I don't know
if the same technical staff will still be there.
