What function does this have if any?

So I recently got this board as a gift from a friend and was told it was an upgrade for my A5. With that being said I don't really know what function this has or if it is even for my printer. Can anyone help. I've looked all over google and cant find anything. Thanks.

    @chendo1213 Welcome!

    I'm sorry to say that it's not for the A5. That is a motor shield for an arduino. You can control 2x (fairly weak) stepper or 4x DC motors off that board, as well as run a few servos too using that board. Google "arduino motor shield" for more info.

    You can buy an arduino uno or arduino mega for a few $, and use this board to control various motors and servos, perhaps for a robot.
