I recently bought this FIC 486-GVT-2 as "dead". I think I figured out the problem and it seems to be a missing PAL chip ...
Is there any way to fix that ? I know these need to be programmed in order to work ... Looking online there seem to be two revisions of the GVT-2 : one with that PAL chip and another without it. Unfortunately I got the model that's supposed to have it 🙁
Edit : tikoellner had one in 2017 :

I have just acquired the motherboard as in the title. I noticed that there is a GAL chip missing that was socketed. Just to the right from the 30 pin SIMM sockets.
As I noticed that there are many VOGONS users owning this particular board, I wanted to ask if there is any posibility to get dump of this GAL chip image.
I could burn the image to some empty Lattice chip (still available) and try tu resurrect the board. I believe without it I'm stuck.
Big thanks for any help with that.
Do you still own this board ? If so can you try to dump it please 😁
