Returning for what is now a sixth appearance in an iPhone are STMicroelectronics paired accelerometers—the L3G4200DH 3-axis digital MEMS gyroscope and the LIS331DLH 3-Axis MEMS accelerometer. Apple feels very comfortable with both of these devices, and one wonders if Nintendo will continue to use these same ICs as well in its next console, the Wii U.
Speaking of familiar manufacturers, Dialog retains its power management IC socket with a new device, the Agatha II, or the D2013. Cirrus Logic also retains its audio codec in the iPhone 5.

For memory, the 32-GB of NAND flash found in the iPhone 5 torn down by UBM TechInsights was provided by SanDisk. The processor memory is found on a package-on-package (PoP) with the A6 applications processor. The PoP we found in our handset utilized Elpida's B8164B3PM 1-GB pow-power DDR2 (LPDDR2) SDRAM.
Lastly, Broadcom maintains its key design wins in the iPhone 5, with the major win being Broadcom's BCM4334 single-chip dual-band 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0+HS & FM receiver combo chip providing the wireless connectivity to the handset. This same die was found within the Samsung Galaxy S3, suggesting that this combo chip is the current king of Wi-Fi.
Inside the Murata module containing the Broadcom BCM4334.
There is three MEMS microphone in i-phone5.
I checked two MEMS Part no.
The first of three microphones comes out of the iPhone 5 along with the Lightning connector assembly.
It is safe to assume that the microphone located at the bottom front of the device is used for voice commands and voice calls.
PART NO NE2606 MEMS microphone seems to be in digital microphone
from Analog Devices or AAC.
If you know a more detailed information , sharing reveal.
The rear-facing microphone partners up with the rear-facing camera for recording video, and is also used for canceling out background noise when on calls.
Part no S949 369S MEMS microphone is similar to Knowles MIC Part no. (Analog)
and the other MIC information i don't get.
@goafrit,Dylan, This was the article which speculated ADI has the MEMS microphone socket in iphone5.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
