A microarray is one type of device that can determine (selected) DNA sequences and thus SNPs. In 'scientific slang', a microarray is often called a "chip". Two major manufacturers of SNP-determining chips are Affymetrix ('Affy'), and, Illumina.

A general discussion is available on Wikipedia, SNP array.
