SiD - what does it mean?

The term SiD crops up in MS's music a lot. What does it mean? Or Where does it come from? Anybody know?

SID/MOS6581 ("Sound Interface Device") is the name of the sound chip used in the Commodore C64 home computer. It's one amazing device with a very unique sound. There are a lot of us out there who simply adore the SID chip and what can be done with it, so many that a small industry exists selling special SID-stations, which is one of the instruments used by the group.

You can get a taste of SID music by downloading and listening to the tunes in the High Voltage SID Collection.

I'm usually right in there on these threads telling people to use the search, but I actually tried searching for something myself the other day and the search sucks. I shall be nicer to peeps from now on!
