    The part should be an Infineon X-Gold 608 Baseband processor for the 3GS. I used to own a 3GS 2009 model and I remember the technical spec for this device.

    This article should help more with some technical details of the chip.

    X-Gold 608 - The iPhone Wiki

    I do remember when disassembling this phone that the chip isn't in the slightest bit easy to replace! Some care is needed removing the solder from the chip as its pins are close together.

    It can be rewritten with BBUpdaterExtreme, but this requires a great deal of care with a jailbroken iOS running with mobile terminal or SSH access. You must use the correct EEP/FLS files otherwise it will brick the processor chip.
