iPhone 6 – Apple devine cel mai mare client al TSMC

  Zvonuri aparute la inceputul acestui an sugerau faptul ca Apple va contracta TSMC pentru a fabrica viitoarele chip-uri ale iDevice-urilor, iar persoane din interiorul taiwanezilor sustin ca Apple este cel mai mare client al lor. Plasand comenzi pentru fabricarea chip-urilor A8 in 2014 si A9 in 2015, Apple a devenit cel mai mare partener al TSMC pentru urmatorul an si jumatate de zile.

Apple is expected to become the largest client for Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) as the Taiwan-based foundry house has begun to ramp up production of A8 processors and is likely to continue to fabricate the vendor’s A9 CPUs in 2015, according to industry sources.¬†Although TSMC appears to have lost Qualcomm’s 14nm chip orders to Samsung Electronics, TSMC will win Apple’s A9 processor orders with its 16nm process, explained the sources.

  Pierzand comenzile celor de la Qualcomm in favoarea companiei Samsung, TSMC va produce chip-uri A9 pentru Apple folosind un proces de fabricatie de 16nm, insa abia peste un an de zile. Pana atunci, TSMC va fabrica doar chip-ul A8 care va fi integrat in iPhone 6 si viitoarele tablete ale Apple, compania americana reusind sa scape partial de dependenta de Samsung prin contractarea taiwanezilor de la TSMC.
