    Looking at some pictures others have posted of the Blizzard 1230 elsewhere it does appear that theres a IC (chip) missing from the board (that would go in the blank footprint on the far side of the board). The battery holder for the RTC appears to be MIA as well (please take these comments with a grain of salt, I do not own one of these accelerators and may be mistaken)

    Edit: the missing chip appears to be Microchip 27C256 EPROM
