[* black] The largesttop two chips are the 6532 '''R'''am-'''I/O'''-'''T'''imer (RIOT) chip and MOS Technology's 6507 CPU and 6532 '''R'''am-'''I/O'''-'''T'''imer (RIOT) chips(a slimmer version of the more popular 6502). By the current revision, they were manufactured by MotorolaSynertek and SynertecRockwell, respectively.

[* black] Atari's custom chip, the '''T'''elevision '''I'''nterface '''A'''dapter ([http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_Interface_Adapter|TIA]) is the moneymaker of the 2600, as it allowed for multiple colors, increased graphic capabilities, and sound.
[* black] Because memory was so expensive during the 2600's design, the video processor has no external RAM. As a result the Atari can only generateCPU must send video data to the TIA one line of video at a time.

[* black] There are six components of video that the TIA can create: The playing field, Two sprites (8 pixel lines), a "ball" (single pixel), and two "missiles" (two pixel lines). Combinations of these elements allowed for the complex video games witnessed in the 2600.
