Chip-ul A7 este fabricat de catre compania Samsung

  Desi s-a spus in repetate randuri ca Apple ar fi ales TSMC, sau mai ciudat, Intel, in locul Samsung pentru fabricarea chip-ului A7 din iPhone 5S, in realitate tot coreenii de la Samsung produc “inima” celui mai puternic si mai popular smartphone al momentului. Desi unii au facut afirmatii “spectaculoase” in ultimele zile in legatura cu producatorul chip-ului A7, iata ca tot Samsung ramane principalul partener Apple pentru fabricarea acestor chip-uri, probabil singurul capabil sa produca aceste componente in cantitati suficiente, cei de la TSMC neavand o linie de productie pregatita pentru a face fata cererilor companiei Apple si cererii existente pe piata.

There was mighty speculation among the internet as to the manufacturer of Apple’s new A7 processor. We uncovered it last night during the iPhone 5s teardown, but now Chipworks has taken it one step further. Through the magic of decapping an IC, their internal shots revealed the A7 to be made by Samsung. Die photos of the A7 are coming. We have confirmed through early analysis that the device is fabricated at Samsung’s Foundry and we will confirm process type and node later today as analysis continues. That being said, we suspect we will see Samsungs 28 nm Hi K metal Gate (HKMG) being used. We have observed this same process in the Samsung Exynos Application processor used in the Galaxy S IV. Our engineers will be deprocessing the Apple A7 as soon as they can to confirm this or to provide different information.

  Apple a incercat in ultimul an sa gaseasca un inlocuitor pentru Samsung, insa din pacate niciuna dintre companiile alese de catre cei din Cupertino nu s-a dovedit a fi suficient de buna in a produce indeajuns de multe componente pentru iDevice-urile celor de la Apple.
