Atari Chips

Recently Curt Vendel from the Atari History Museum posted a document from Atari, that had a list of chips that were being worked on. Some of them were quite common, but others are a mystery. Below is a cleaned up version of the list with some descriptions of the known chips. The initials after each description are the person who provided the information:
