Apple's A5 is a dual core processor & the die size is already 12 x 10 mm. The A6 is a quad core and even at 28 nm would be quite large. The larger the die the lower the yield, especially at the bleeding edge node. There was a report that TSMC would prefer a multi - chip package for the A6 using Si interposer. Does anyone know whats pushing TSMC towards that ? What about the A6 at Samsung ?

tsmc better get to 14 nm within a year and 10 nm in two years.

As i said in the article: fighting in court over smartphone patents and market introductions; supportive buyer-customer relations at the chip level. One might think it strange that Samsung doesn't just cut Apple off, but if it did that it might damage Samsung's ability to sell chips in the future and its protestations of Chinese Walls between divisions.

iPAD with A6 quad core will be very useful for product enhancement. What new functionality will it bring with it?

So this is really running in Austin? I didn't think that was a logic fab - I would have expected this chip to come our Korea.

This is not unheard of to have two companies simultaneously fighting each other and also doing business together.

But is Samsung not in legal battle with Apple? Are they still working together?

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.
