We believe this was a precursor to the A500 development system, and because it could be hosted over Tube to a BBC, allowed the operating system to be developed for the A500 as the BBC could host the initial IO.
The board is stripped of most of the chips, but believed to host an ARM, IOMD, MEMC and VIDC, together with memory chips and a Tube ULA for connection to a BBC computer.
The board contains four OS chips.
