AY-3-8910 Speech Synthesis

A Python library to control a General Instrument AY-3-8910 sound generator from a Raspberry Pi. To demonstrate the abilities of the chip, I used it to synthesize speech.

This sound chip was first produced in 1978, and was in arcade and pinball games, the Intellivision and Vectrex game consoles, and in sound cards for the Apple II and TRS-80 Color Computer.”
