Apple’s New A6 Chip Undergoing Testing

Apple has decided on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC) to build its next generation A6 chip, which has just begun trial production, Taiwan Economic News reported.

“TSMC has applied its newest 28-nanometer process and 3D stacking technologies to produce the next-generation processor A6, which is based on the ARM architecture and will undergo TSMC’s cutting-edge silicon interposer and bump on trace (BOT) methodologies,” Taiwan Economic News’ Steve Chuang writes.

The report states that the new A6 chip is in its early testing stages and isn’t expected to be unveiled until at least the second quarter of next year. It is possible that the A6 processor could be ready in time for an early 2012 release of the iPad 3. The rumored iPhone 5 would likely house the A5 chip.
