While going through a stack of Indy's that saved from being ground up
for recycling, I discovered a card inside one that has an XILINX FPGA,
TI DSP, ASIC and some RAM. The SGI part number is 030-8244. I did a
quick google and found it listed with a bunch of resellers as a
Babelfish. What is this? What applications could take advantage of it?

Thanks in advance,
Derek

It's the Indy Compression 2 (video compression, I think?) board.
