More Details About A6 Chip Surface
News agency Reuters reports that the Taiwanese chip manufacturer TSMC has begun test production of Apple’s upcoming processor known as the A6. However, it is not yet clear whether TSMC will get the assignment.
According to Reuters, TSMC must first prove that the company is able to produce sufficient numbers of processors on time.
TSMC has received all the details and permissions from Apple to begin test production. Whether Apple will make a formal request to the processor depends on production capacity, says Reuters source.
Is the data means that Apple assumes Samsung previously made ??Apple’s processors. A6-processors will not be shipped until next year and the current A5 processors are still made by Samsung.
One of the reasons why Apple chooses to outsource manufacturing of a new business can be due to the recent legal dispute with Samsung, writes Reuters.
Apple has famously ended up in a somewhat precarious seat with its largest and closest business partner Samsung. While lawsuits hails between the two companies said Apple is now embarked on the first test of the effects of next-generation mobile systems, processors, Apple A6. But instead of the Samsung is TSMC, which accounts for silicon processing this time.
Apple is said to be moving away from Samsung for the manufacture of its future mobile circles, and now says sources told Reuters that the first test of the effects of semiconductor manufacturer, TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) has already begun.
For Apple’s job now is to find a stable manufacturing partners in good time prior to launch next year’s mobile products, where Apple A6 will become a key component. Samsung is currently the only manufacturer that rolls out Apple A5 Processor for delivery to the iPad, factories and even millions of units sold each month and an iPhone 5-launch around the corner get Samsung to worry about more than just the lawsuit Apple filed against the company. Should Apple switch circuit manufacturers to TSMC, and any other party, the Samsung lose considerable income.
At the same time Apple to find a partner that can supply enough chips to a great cost, which is now evaluating their tests at TSMC
According to rumors, Apple just A5 processor to be one of the reasons for the unexpectedly late launch of the iPhone fifth The circuit will have difficulty in breathing in his new smartphone suit and the dual-core processor is said to suffer from temperature problems in Apple’s fifth-generation iPhone.
All information is as usual unconfirmed by Apple itself and should be taken with a grain of salt. But clearly, it sounds reasonable that Apple is looking for alternatives to their demanding circuit manufacturing, and TSMC sounds like a credible candidate. If the company can deliver on Apple’s desire remains to be seen.
