The SN76489AN is a very basic chip, probably second to the VIC-I. Even though the AY-3-8910 is a tad bit more complex (the envelopes), in many places you will read both the SN and the AY described as "PSG"s or programmable sound generator.
- Basic 50% duty cycle square
- "1/15" duty "cyclic noise, (rarely used)
- 32767 bit long Noise pattern. (different on chip variations)
That chip was used in way too many computers, consoles and Arcade machines to list, probably due to its simplicity and price... It was however included as a discreet chip on my first video game console, the ColecoVision.
