I am not familiar with the board, but I would definitely think it is a
high-res graphics card. You can make the 6545 drive a bitmap graphics similar
to the C64 hires graphics (moochrome). I've actually done similar things with 
my selfbuilt computer.
An analysis of the schematics would surely reveal how to use it if there
is no documentation.

I'm sure you want to keep it yourself - but if you want to get rid of it,
think of me ;-)
