From TSMC will be the exclusive OEM Apple’s next-generation A10 processors-aspack

From TSMC will be the exclusive OEM Apple next generation Sina A10 processor technology news Beijing time on February 11th morning news, according to South Korean media reports that TSMC has already reached an agreement with apple, will become the next generation of iPhone processor for sole agency business. Previously, TSMC and Samsung shared the processor orders of iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Reported that TSMC with 10 nanometer chip manufacturing process than samsung. TSMC is expected to launch mass production of Apple’s next generation A10 processor in June this year, and iPhone 7 is expected to be released in September this year. TSMC builds A8 processors for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for apple. Samsung, however, recaptured part of the A9 processor’s orders. The cooperation between apple and Samsung in the field of chip foundry has attracted much attention. After last year’s iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S sales, users found differences between TSMC chips and Samsung chips. Running test and video display, iPhone 6S with TSMC chip has lower heating capacity and longer battery life. In response, apple responded, "even considering the difference between different components", iPhone 6S individual battery life difference is only 2% to 3%. In addition, Samsung’s way to win A9 processor OEM orders has also been questioned. A Taiwan court ruled that TSMC is a research and development director will disclose the company’s trade secrets to help Samsung, Samsung manufacturing process in terms of chip driven TSMC, and won the apple orders.

传台积电将独家代工苹果下一代A10处理器   新浪科技讯 北京时间2月11日上午消息,据韩国媒体报道,台积电已经与苹果达成协议,将成为下一代iPhone处理器的独家代工商。此前,台积电和三星分享了iPhone 6s和iPhone 6s Plus的处理器订单。   报道称,台积电凭借10纳米芯片制造工艺胜过了三星。台积电预计将于今年6月启动苹果下一代A10处理器的量产,而iPhone 7预计将于今年9月发布。   台积电为苹果代工了iPhone 6和iPhone 6 Plus中的A8处理器。然而三星夺回了A9处理器的部分代工订单。苹果与三星在芯片代工领域的合作一直备受注目。   在去年iPhone 6s和iPhone 6s开售之后,用户发现了台积电芯片和三星芯片之间的差异。跑分测试和视频显示,采用台积电芯片的iPhone 6s发热量较低,电池续航时间较长。对此苹果回应称,“即使考虑不同元件的差异”,iPhone 6s个体的电池续航时间差别只有2%至3%。   此外,三星赢得A9处理器代工订单的方式也受到质疑。台湾一家法院判决称,台积电一名研发总监将公司的商业机密透露给三星,帮助三星在芯片制造工艺方面赶上台积电,并赢得了苹果的订单。(维金)相关的主题文章:
