I have been given a medium format camera along with a couple of lens and a 6x6 and a panaroma back that take 35mm film. Is there such a thing as a digital back for thi camera, a Bronica SQAi and if so, what sort of price.

Not as such and you need to ask whether the cost is viable.

You can get a Silvestri adaptor to Hasselblad V fitting...

This will allow you to fit Hasselblad, Leaf or Phase one backs... but the adaptor alone is £5 short of £600 plus the cost of the back, which even buying used is prohibitively expensive.

As a side note you might be interested in one of these to try out your med format lenses using your existing camera as a 'digital back'
