Not to the best of my ability to tell. You could of course construct a
Linux system with that as a secondary host adapter, and then keep trying
"modprobe" of various SCSI driver modules, to see if one suddenly works
(because your card's chipset happened to be a clone of the one the
driver was for).

Stranger things have happened. Speaking for myself, I make a point of
putting bizarre and problematic hardware firmly in the rubbish bin:
Even giving it away raises the risk of its recipient coming back to you
