These functions include timing, video generation, memory mapping, sound, clock generation, and miscellaneous GLU (general logic unit) functions.
* '''Endeavor'''. The Endeavor is a programmable video clock chip used in the Macintosh Quadra 840AV; the equivalent in the Macintosh Centris 660AV is called Clifton Plus.
* '''Enhanced ASC''' (Apple Sound Chip), a custom IC that replaces the Apple Sound Chip
* '''F108'''. The F108 IC performs the system memory control functions. It also includes circuitry equivalent to the SCC and SCSI controller ICs.
* '''Grackle'''. The Grackle IC functions as the bridge between the PowerPC microprocessor bus and the I/O and graphics devices on the PCI bus. It provides buffering and address translation from one bus to the other. * '''Grand Central'''. The Grand Central custom IC provides an interface between the standard Macintosh I/O devices and the PCI bus. A DMA controller in the Grand Central IC supports DMA I/O transfers through that IC’s internal I/O devices and through the Curio IC.  
* '''Hammerhead'''. A custom IC called Hammerhead controls the memory subsystem. The components of the Hammerhead IC are the system bus controller, the DRAM controller, the ROM controller, the second-level (L2) cache controller.
* '''Heathrow'''. The Heathrow IC is an I/O controller and DMA engine for Power Macintosh computers using the PCI bus architecture.
* '''IOSB'''. The IOSB includes I/O data bus buffers, a SWIM2 floppy disk controller, VIA1 and VIA2. The IOSB IC provides the data bus services of the MC68030 that the MC68040 does not provide.
* '''JDB''' (Junction Data Bus), one of two ICs making up the I/O Adapter, connecting the data signals from the system bus and the I/O bus
* '''KeyLargo'''. The I/O controller IC in the PowerBook computer is a custom IC called KeyLargo. It provides the interface and control signals for the following devices: hard drive, USB, modem, etc.
* '''Kiwi'''. The Kiwi IC is a very large-scale IC that incorporates the functions of the YANCC IC used in the Macintosh Quadra 700 and 950 computers along with the bus transceivers and several driver ICs. The Kiwi IC provides an interface to the MC68040 on one side and a NuBus interface on the other side.
* '''MCU''' (Memory Control Unit), a custom IC that connects to the system bus and controls regular and burst-mode data transfers to and from the main RAM and ROM
* '''MESH'''. The MESH IC is a custom IC that controls the SCSI bus to the internal SCSI devices. Because this bus does not have to drive a long external bus, it can operate at higher transfer rates than the external SCSI bus.
* '''Mickey'''. The Mickey is a composite video encoder in a 28-pin advanced bipolar CMOS chip. It is used in the AV card.
==N==* '''New Age'''. The New Age is a floppy disk controller in a 64-pin CMOS chip.
* '''O’Hare'''. The O’Hare IC is based on the Grand Central IC present in the Power Macintosh 7500 computer. It is an I/O controller and DMA engine for Power Macintosh computers using the PCI bus architecture
* '''Paddington'''. The I/O controller IC in the Macintosh iMac computer is an ASIC called Paddington. The Paddington IC is an integrated I/O controller and DMA engine for use in Power Macintosh computers with a PCI bus.
* '''Power Manager'''. The Power Manager IC is a 68HC05 microprocessor that operates with its own RAM and ROM.

* '''Sixty6''', an RGB-to-YUV converter and convolver for the second video output stream (on the Power Macintosh 8500 computer only)
* '''Sonora''' is a new custom chip that integrates the functions of the V8 and SWIM chips used in the Macintosh LC II. These functions include timing, memory mapping, video and sound control, miscellaneous GLU (General Logic Unit) functions, and floppy disk control.
* '''Squidlet''' is a 28-pin chip that provides a set of synchronized system clocks for Power Macintosh computers.
* '''SWIM''' (Super Woz Integrated Machine), the IC that supports the SuperDrive high-density floppy disk drive
==U==* '''Uni-N'''. The Uni-N memory controller and bus bridge IC provides cost and performance benefits by combining several functions into a single IC. It contains the memory controller, the PCI bus bridge, the Ethernet and FireWire interfaces, and the AGP port.
* '''Valkyrie'''. The Valkyrie IC is a custom IC containing the logic for the video display. It includes the following functions: display memory controller, video CLUT (color lookup table), video DAC (digital-to-analog converter).
* '''Valkyrie-AR'''. The Valkyrie-AR IC is a custom IC containing the logic for the video display.
* '''Video Display Interface'''. The Video Display Interface chip is a custom IC designed to keep the Macintosh Portable 68HC000 CPU from having to refresh the screen (LCD display), thereby allowing the CPU to do more useful work.
