I got this faulty chip out of a Corsair AIO water cooling unit.

I can't identify this chip or its package. Pictures of the chip are below.

The size is rather small, 1mm x 1.2mm. The markings on top state 'AV BG,' which gave me no results in my research.

I suspect it could be a QFN-8 or some form of WSON-6. It would mean a lot to me if someone has some hints. Anything helps so I may find this chip and repair the AIO...

It's a Renesas device in a STQFN-8 package, likely a SLG46108 PLD. (Devices in this package seem to be orginally made by Silego which was acquired by Dialog which was acquired by Renesas. )

The markings used on these devices don't seem to contain a code that can be used to easily identify the product or at least this information isn't made public:

I found the following devices in this package, but there might be more:

The SLG7RN46452 is probably just a pre-configured SLG46108. The datasheet states that Renesas lets you order these chip pre-configured with a custom configuration and product code. The BG marking might be specific for this configuration by Corsair.
