Can you make the picture smaller? I can see way to much detail on that thumbnail

Its a custom job.... no doumentation

It looks like the large black chip says atmel, so there is hope that regular marlin may run on it, but I cant read the numbers.
But as for what board it may be compatible with? is unknown.

I would try a ramps and see what doesnt work... (with hotend and heated bed unplugged for safety)

but find out what the numbers on that large black chip say first.

Looks a lot like my MKS GEN_L, though the ESP and endstop pin locations are switched.

Still, the ESP1 and ESP2 headers to connect to the RepRap discount controller are probably a very good indication that it's a Mega2560/RAMPS1.4 clone board. Take a look at the big chip on the board for "MEGA2560" in the print, and you can probably be assured that this is indeed what it is.

Have any luck with this? I have the same board and am looking at updating the firmware.

That’s a KFB 2.0 board.

Here’s an helpful instructable Link on the board.
