Cracking Open the IBM PC Jr.

Mystery chip

The chip marked in yellow may be important, but I found it curious. I also found that I could not find information explaining what its function was. I would guess it has something to do with either the RAM expansion or the Internal modem.

Perhaps someone out there can share some insight concerning the chip in question?
