Posted on Wednesday, March 16 2011 @ 00:35:53 CET by

EE Times learned that Apple's A5 processor used in the Apple iPad 2 is manufactured by Samsung.
Samsung fabs the A5 processor used in the Apple iPad 2, according to teardowns of the system and chip conducted by UBM TechInsights, a division of United Business Media, publisher of EE Times.

"We can say with 100 percent certainty that this is a Samsung-made chip," said Allan Yogasingam, a technical marketing manager for TechInsights.

The company conducted a cross-section analysis of the chip that revealed details indicating Samsung made the chip in its 45nm process, the same process and fab Apple used for its previous generation A4 SoC. Previously, several sources speculated Apple might take the business of having its internally designed A5 SoC to TSMC.
