[rescue] SBus card doc sought

I find I have some SBus cards without doc. I'm wondering if perchance
any of you might know where I could find documentation on them.
(Binary-only drivers do not count as documentation unless for some
reason it's OK for me to reverse-engineer them, which IME most
binary-only drivers' licenses forbid.)
Specifically, I have
I know this is a FibreChannel interface, but nothing more.
Some kind of fibre-optic card, presumably an ATM interface.
The back panel is marked
(and "Tx", "Rx", and "Status", which appear to apply to the
fiber connector and a LED, respectively).
Some kind of fibre-optic card, based on the back-panel
connector (the device behind that connector is marked "125 Mb/s
1300nm", "FSD TRANSCEIVER", and "269055-5"). I find nothing on
this card that looks to me like a manufacturer name or logo
(except on some of the chips), nor model number ("nf" is simply
what it shows up as in OBP when I put it in a SS20). It has a
sticker with a barcode and the text "3702715010402", which I
would suspect of being a Sun barcode except that (a) I'd expect
to see the Sun name/logo and (b) IME Sbus cards are 501-
numbers, not 370- numbers. Other text I find in the PCB etch:
) 1995 S-BUS4 610-0241-02A REV
MADE IN U.S.A.
And, on stickers on two of the chips (/ indicates a line break)
650-0310-01 / REV 1.0 U1
0319-03 / 4.2 / U13 / 7EFBDF
(That is how it shows up in OBP.) This is from "PERFORMANCE
TECHNOLOGIES, INC." and appears to be some kind of serial card;
it's got a daughterboard attached which is prominently marked
"RS422" in two places. There are four back-panel connectors
which look a bit like the SS20 back-panel SCSI connector, only
about half the width (26 pins each) and with screw sockets
instead of latch clips for connector retention.
