Apple A6 to be made by TSMC?

Posted on Tuesday, June 28 2011 @ 20:46:26 CEST by


ARS Technica reports Apple will likely tap TSMC to manufacture its next-gen A6 ARM-based SoCs as the company's relationship with Samsung is becoming increasingly strained.
Apple's increasingly tenuous relationship with Samsung as a component supplier for its mobile devices could end next year, according to numerous sources inside the semiconductor industry. The company will likely tap contract fab Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company to build its next-generation ARM SoCs, currently dubbed "A6," sometime in 2012.

Rumors of a partnership between Apple and TSMC began in early 2011, prior to Apple's introduction of the iPad 2 and its A5 processor. Those rumors were later corroborated by sources for EE Times, which suggested Apple was working with TSMC to move its mobile processors to the foundry's 28nm process. It was later revealed that manufacturing partner Samsung, which produced the A4 processors in the iPhone 4 and original iPad, was still producing the A5 processors for Apple's next-generation products.
