Its a battery backed 400k ram that emulates a floppy drive (actually 2 x
160K). I bought mine new a few years ago, sigh ala 1970's, and it must have
been prior to the Sider hard drives otherwise why would I have bought it
(could be faster). It was really fast, but I don't recall any special card.
OTOH its sitting buried and still hooked up in my office, so I could check
when that area rises to the surface. That would be a load I would look over
very carefully for any other goodies.

It won't be very soon, but when I find mine I will post info to the list.
