Samsung to make Apple A6 SoC?

Posted on Tuesday, October 18 2011 @ 22:15:00 CEST by

X-bit Labs reports Samsung may remain Apple's critical business partner in 2012:
Despite of the fact that Apple has been rumoured to hold talks with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company over manufacturing of Apple's next-generation A6 system-on-chip, Samsung Electronics will still produce the new SoC for the consumer electronics giant, according to a press report. It remains to be seen whether Apple will receive the new chips from two sources or TSMC and Samsung will produce different versions of SoCs.

"Apple has been in talks with Samsung over shipment of its A6 quad-core mobile processor chips to be used in the next iPhone. It appears that Apple clearly has concluded that Samsung remains a critical business partner. Samsung Electronics will apply its advanced 28-nanometer processing technology to produce qualified A6 mobile APs. TSMC will provide customized chips with designs from Apple, however, the volume will be very small," an executive from an Apple parts supplier based in Korea told Korea Times news-paper on condition of anonymity.
