Samsung made the first A5 chips. Then, however, TSMC will reportedly ramp the A5 in Q3 or Q4, according to sources. TSMC could be a second source to Samsung for the 45- and 40-nm version. Then, TSMC will fab the 28-nm version, sources said.

Guess we'll have to wait for the teardown of the iPad 3 to find out if that comes to pass ;-)

I don't have to wait. The cat (TSMC) is out of the (Apple) bag.

Starting from 2007, the Taiwanese rumor many times, what is OEM XBOX CPU, OEM ATOM, OEM INTEL chipset, OEM A5, a result of a bankruptcy can be seen from here in the downhill TSMC

Is entirely speculation, APPLE's Samsung SOC design, foundry TSMC has not showed

Does anybody know why Samsung can still win the right to manufacture the A5 this time? Is it because of a better fab process or something else that Taiwanese can't really compete with?

There are no sources, just one analyst making a guess.

Samsung must have given Apple some special break. Could every Galaxy tablet sold have a kickback?

On the other hand, TSMC and GlobalFoundries both make Snapdragon for Qualcomm, which is used to power the HTC phones competing with Iphone. So I don't see why ultimately Apple won't use both Samsung and TSMC. Ultimately it can impose capacity burden on competing products at least indirectly.

Samsung Fab has great merit like free IP use fee, ultimate design support and 24 hours support.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
