Does anybody know what this Data East / Microsoft card is?

Hi,

Does anybody know what this DEC-22vo ISA card is ? I can only seem to find a few references to mame. This card has a connector that looks like it connects to a 3 1/2 inch floppy cable, it what looks like flash memory on it?

I purchased a 486 pc which only had this card, another Data East card, just another ISA card with a serial connection. There was also a PCI video output / capture card and a CD-Rom drive. There was also some heavy duty power cables from the power supply with strange connectors sticking out the back of the pc.

The strange thing is, that it could boot into to dos, japanese dos at that, with no hard disk installed ? Must have had something to do with this card...

Was this maybe used to develop arcade games?

Thanks
