Hardware, Embedded Systems Very sad news indeed. Jack Tramiel, founder of Commodore International and the man behind Atari, has passed away this past weekend. At 83, he passed away, surrounded by family and friends. People like this don't come in dozens, so we lost one of the great men of computing.

I don`t know how involved he was.

PS: SNES audio chip.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_S-SMP

The S-DSP is capable of producing and mixing 8 simultaneous voices at any relevant pitch and volume in 16-bit stereo at a sample rate of 32 kHz. It has support for voice panning, ADSR envelope control, echo with filtering (via a programmable 8-tap FIR), and using noise as sound source (useful for certain sound effects such as wind). S-DSP sound samples are stored in RAM in compressed (BRR) format. Communications between the S-SMP and the S-DSP are carried out via memory-mapped I/O.

Snes Released 21. november 1990.

Amiga 4000, released 1992. Same old faggot 8bit 4chan chip. TWO YEARS LATER. And the Amiga 4000 was exceedingly expensive..
