The MOS Technology 8364, better known as Paula, is the four-channel audio chip that is used in every Amiga model, including the CDTV and the CD³². Besides audio playback, the 8364 also includes logic for floppy disk drive control and serial port input/output.
The four 8-bit audio channels each have a DMA pointer register, a data register, a frequency register, and a 6-bit volume register. Each channel has a digital-to-analog converter on the output. The four channels are grouped into a left and right audio output.
The disk controller has registers for data read, data write and control. It also contains a precompensation output circuit, and a data separator input circuit.
The serial port universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter has registers for data receive, data transmit and control.
There are four "pot ports" which are general purpose I/O pins which have counters for simple analog-to-digital conversion. They can be used to read out the position of analog joysticks.
The interrupt controller handles internal and external interrupts.
