Has Apple bought CPU designer Intrinsity?

Posted on Sunday, April 04 2010 @ 19:28:18 CEST by

EDN found some evidence that Apple may have acquired ARM chip designer Intrinsity:
Well, the pieces are falling into place. Solid rumor has it that Intrinsity has been sold, and that the buyer's identity will become public in the next day or two. Keep in mind that it's Thursday afternoon, and that the iPad is due to go on sale in about 36 hours' time. As soon as that happens, software developers' NDAs will likely also expire, and at that point we'll know for sure the source of the iPad's CPU...which again, I strongly suspect, is Intrinsity in conjunction with its silicon integration and foundry partner, Samsung. So an acquisition announcement coincident with the iPad rollout makes a lot of sense, particularly if (as expected) Apple's plans for the A4 extend beyond the iPad. And the fact that Intrinsity's website home page is currently 'under construction' further thickens the plot. Expect something, I suspect, after close of market Friday.
