Parts

Mainboard

Apparently manufactured by Hitachi. At least there is a Hitachi logo on the PCB, which can be seen on this picture.
Also, it says "HCL" which could stand for Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory (HCL)

Processor

1.0GHz Intel Pentium M-based "Crofton" CPU, based on SSE2 Dothan model # 7645A966 0159
Cypress CY28445LFXC-5 Clock Generator - for Intel Calistoga chipset (MIA on Cypress site)
Overclocking possibilities?

Boot Flash (SPI)

Although Ultra Mobile ICH7-U claims to be missing SPI interface, it appears this device contains the system boot code.
SST 25VF016B 16 Mbit SPI Serial Flash 28-page pdf datasheet

System moniter (guessing) 8051-type MCU

SST 89V54RD2 8-bit 8051-Compatible Microcontroller with Embedded SuperFlash Memory SST web page
This 44-lead TQFP device needs some probing. What does it do for the system? Watchdog? 81-page pdf datasheet

Hard Disk

FUJITSU MHW2040AT

Memory

256 MB DDR2-667 5-5-5(CL-tRCD-tRP), soldered onboard (4x NANYA NT5TU32M16BG-3C)
More specifics may be found in Nanya's website.
80-page pdf datasheet

Graphics

NVidia GeForce Go 7300 / G72 (some, possibly older, sources say it is a G72M / 7400)
GeForce 7 Series Technicals
With 64 MB GDDR3-700, soldered (2x SAMSUNG K4J55323QG-BC14)
More specifics may be found in Samsung's website.
53-page pdf datasheet

HDMI Transmitter

Silicon Image SiI1930CTU HDMI 1.1, supports DTV (480i - 1080p) and PC (VGA - UXGA) resolutions

Sound

Realtek ALC885 7.1+2 Channel High Definition Audio Codec
98-page pdf datasheet

Wireless

Broadcom BCM43xx ExpressCard/34 module (BCM94321MC)

LED/IR Remote Controller

Cypress calls this chip a 'low-speed USB Peripheral Controller' but in aTV it has nothing to do with the external USB port.
It is an 8-bit microcontroller with 8K of FLASH and 256 bytes of RAM, also a possible watch-dog timer for the system.
Its various GPIOs go to the header that the front baby-board connects to.
Cypress CY7C63823-SXC 74-page pdf datasheet

Lan

Realtek RTL8100C Single-Chip PCI Fast Ethernet Controller with Power Management
75-page pdf datasheet
ST Microelectronics M93C46WP 1K-bit Microwire Serial Access EEPROM (PCI VPD)
31-page pdf datasheet

Northbridge Chipset

Intel 945G

Southbridge Chipset

Intel 82801GUX (ICH7 Family)
I/O Controller Hub 7 (ICH7-U) - 'Ultra Mobile' version (GU) with PCI express and (probably) SPI (X undocumented @Intel)
848-page pdf datasheet
