[rescue] Dec PCI cards

I spent most of today finally de-racking all the stuff that was in the
Digital racks I got from Ethan, during the course of which I got curious
about what was in the PCI cages on the three Alphaservers.  One of'em's
loaded to the gills, and I identified a bunch of FDDI cards and Qlogic
and i960 disk controllers, but two cards have me baffled.

They're full-length 32-bit PCI cards, with Lattice chips on them, a red
AMP connector at the inner end that looks to be 30 pins or so (I didn't
count), and an external connector that looks exactly like a 68-pin SCSI
high-density connector except that, if I counted correctly, it has an
even hundred pins.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what this might be?  I've never heard of
anything with a 100-pin connector before.  (Damn thing's about three
inches wide.)
