Can some one help me identify this board plz Answered

Hey,
      I built an arduino from  the instructions on your site at    https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-Your-Own-Arduino/
then I face problems in getting a TTL-232R 3.3V USB – TTL Level Serial Cable as i am from India (Shipping charges).
I began searching for alternatives for the cable. On my search i found a board similar to the arduino it has a ATMEGA8 micro controller chip.
i have  uploaded the images. It has a FTDI chip (FT232BL) which as far as i know used in the cable. Let me know if i can use this chip as an alternative for the cable or is this by itself an arduino. if so please tell me where i could get the driver for this.

                                    Ps the board has  16 pin for output if u can see properly

Dunno, but it has this other chip on the board http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/data_sheets/ds023.pdf

It looks like two usb through connectors going to the outline of an SD card or something. What are the other jacks on the board - one for power or ethernet? This might be the control or data logger module of something else and not a stand-alone arduino as we know it.

I'm only starting to delve into arduino - ATMEGA8 is an earlier chip, at least smaller chip?

I don't think that's an ethernet port; just "something else" using the same RJ45 connector (if it were an ethernet, there would be magnetics, and probably something resembling an ethernet controller.) I don't have any idea what the board does; LOTS of things use RJ45 connectors, and the AVR onboard theoretically doesn't support USB. The FTDI chip is probably connected to the USB B connector, but I don't have any ideas what the other two USB connectors are used for (perhaps power only?) Even the software USB implementations for mega8 won't support the USB host implied by the type-A connectors.
