Samsung begins production of the Apple’s A5 chip in Texas
Even after fighting so many legal battles all around the world, Apple and Samsung are still working together and are interdependent. According to sources, now Apple’s A5 chip that is the most important component of any iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is being made at Samsung’s new facility in Texas.
Samsung, the manufacturer of the A5 chip which is designed by Apple, recently completed a $3.6 billion non-memory chip production plant in December which is now fully up and running. The new production line is now making the A5 chips at a full production rate which is helping Apple meet the demand for its iOS devices.
With this startup, Samsung has been able to add about 1,100 jobs to support the new chip production line, which is spread on a whooping 1.6 million square feet. It is also being said that the future chip A6 will also go into production at this very facility only.
