Apple A6X System On Chip Teardown Analysis Posted

EETimes has posted a report by Allan Yogasingam, a technical research manager at corporate sister company of EETimes UBM TechInsights, which conducted a full teardown analysis of Apple Inc.’s iPad mini and iPad 4 tablets shortly after the devices were released on Nov. 2. Engineers from UBM TechInsights put Apple’s A6X system-on-chip with dual-core processor and quad-core graphics engine that powers the iPad 4 under the knife (and microscope).

Yogasingam notes that the A6X die is about 30 percent larger in die area and much different in size and shape in comparison to Apple’s A6 SoC used in the iPhone 5, which casts serious doubt on recent rumors that Apple is planning to graft the A6X into the iPhone.
