The security chip in the Wii is known as Hollywood; it bears the logos of NEC (who presumably manufactured the chip), ATI (who designed the GPU inside), and BroadOn (who designed the Starlet "I/O Bridge").

Its hardware is documented on the Hardware article and subpages. Hardware inside includes the GX, boot0 ROM, OTP, and Starlet

Pinout (Hollywood, Hollywood AA)

The Hollywood chip is 2 or 3 flip-chip dies bonded to a BGA substrate, with a 30 x 30 (or later, 28x28) grid of balls to connect it to the rest of the circuit. Most balls are connected to other layers by way of vias; some signals are routed completely on the top layer.

(Please help verify and complete this pinout with a continuity tester! This pinout is for the earlier 30x30 version of the Hollywood; the 28x28 package has a completely different pinout.)

Hollywood ID

It seems to be implied by the formulas used for the Wii Number that the Hollywood ID is a 32bit unsigned int.[check]
