Didn't anybody answer this? I've got a small Apple ][ card which might
be its twin...

Mine says "APPLE 2/3 XEBEC INTERFACE REV1" on the top edge. It has a
6522 VIA chip, some LSTTL, 2732 EPROM, a RAM chip, a couple of 74S240s,
and a terminator pack next to a 26-pin header. I don't know what this
is supposed to connect to; it might be SASI (it has just about enough
pins and just about enough I/O), and that's certainly what Xebec were
famous for.
