Application Processors – Dual Sourced 

Apple has dual sourced its A9 Application Processor from Samsung (14 nm FinFET) and TSMC (16 nm FinFET). Chipworks will be doing deep structural analysis of the TSMC process. Chipworks is working to confirm if the process is TSMC 16FF or 16FF+. We will be able to differentiate between these two processes once we understand the standard cell architecture and BEOL integration, where major differences are expected. Stay tuned! Preliminary SEM and TEM images will be available to report pre-purchasers

In-Depth Technology Benchmarking  Based on phone-level benchmarks, the otherwise identical iPhone 6s are not the same http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0bAeJ5fJ1M0  Apple’s Dual-Source of the A9 applications processor allows Chipworks a unique opportunity to directly benchmark two technologies in the exact same design – Process analysis and costing – Standard cell implementation and routing efficiency – Transistor characterization and capacitance modeling – Block-level power measurements  Perf/Power/Area metric would indicate Samsung should have the lead in battery life based on area. However, our measurement of the 14LPE process on Exynos has shown a weak NMOS, can this be the cause of the power difference between TSMC and Samsung A9s?

Display Driver Win for Synaptics Synaptics’ Q3 2014 acquisition of Renesas let them reap the rewards of the Renesas design win in the iPhone 6 and 6 plus, and Synaptics repeats this year with the design win for the iPhone 6s and 6s plus DDI. Looking forward Synaptics may be able to leverage this design win to move Apple towards a touch screen controller and display driver integrated solution. Chipworks first catalogued this disruptive design in the ZTE Q7 S6 Lux..

According to Synaptics there are a number of key benefits to TDDI:  Best-in-Class Performance – synchronizes touch sensing and display driving to virtually eliminate display noise and offer bestin-class capacitive touch performance.  Thinner Form Factors – Integration of the touch sensor into the display results in thinner form factors.  Brighter Displays – Fewer layers in the touchscreen results in a brighter display, or longer battery life for the same brightness.  Lower System Cost – Reducing the number of components, eliminating lamination steps and increasing manufacturing yield lowers overall system cost for OEMs.

Synaptics iPhone 6S Display Driver IC R63318 (DDI)

Synaptics Touch and Display Driver Integration (TDDI) first generation, ZTE Q7 S6 Lux. Currently sampling second generation. Touch Screen Controller The touch screen controller was comprised of a two chip solution in the iPhone 6, this socket was held by Broadcom and Texas Instruments. In the iPhone 6S these two chips were combined into a single package with a third unknown chip. The next evolutionary step would be to move to an integrated touch and display driver solution. NOTE: Chips are not scaled.

Fingerprint Sensor – 2nd Generation The last three generations of the iPhone (5, 5s, 6) have contained the same fingerprint sensor. Apple is now releasing their 2nd generation fingerprint sensor. We were excited to find contacts going from the front to the back of the die. Could this be TSMC’s first demonstration of TSVs?

3D Touch – Apple’s adoption and what it may mean to the OEM World An intellectual property perspective On September 2, just a couple of days before Apple’s iPhone 6s announcement, Huawei announced its own Android-based smartphone, the Mate S, with a Force Touch-inspired pressure sensitive screen. It seems Force Touch technology applications are going to get crowded rather quickly. We decided to investigate who is patenting in the area. In other words, who would be interested in and prepared for potential licensing and litigation? We also wanted to find patents possibly applicable to Apple’s existing and future Force Touch products. There are already some reports on BlackBerry (then RIM) patenting in the area (US9092057) at the time of their Storm smartphone release in 2008. This report, however, missed the point, since the patents discussed relate more to haptic feedback than to the force touch applied in Apple products. A quick keyword search shows us the filing companies.

One glaring omission seems to be Huawei. This is odd, as one would expect they will become one of the preferred targets in any potential war. Expect Huawei to go after patent acquisitions.

3D Touch – Apple’s adoption and what it may mean to the OEM World An intellectual property perspective What are patented topics?

It is obvious that Force Touch, touch sensors, threshold value, and actuators dominate the filings. Which patents are potentially applicable against Apple (and other) products? Analyzing patenting companies and patents themselves, two companies appear in the forefront: BlackBerry and Qualcomm. We managed to uncover a couple of examples that we feel are applicable to Apple products.

Time of Flight Sensor – A better solution to proximity detection STMicroelectronics VL6180 Time of Flight Sensor • Chipworks’ first recorded design win of the VL6180 occurred in the BlackBerry Passport. We have since found the VL6180 in 5 different LGE smartphones. • The primary application of the VL6180 is the replacement of existing proximity detection technology. Proximity sensors are used in nearly all smartphones to detect the user’s head during a phone call. Unfortunately, the amplitude of the reflected light varies according to the distance but also with the reflectance level of the target, which can be as low as 3 percent for dark black hair. This can lead to ambiguous results - quite frustrating to some users.  The VL6180 allows absolute distance to be measured independent of target reflectance. Instead of estimating the distance by measuring the amount of light reflected back from the object, the VL6180C precisely measures the time the light takes to travel to the nearest object and reflect back to the sensor.  Was used in the LG G3 as the laser autofocus for the rear facing camera  The integration of the SPAD, IR emitter and Ambient Light Sensor is an impressive engineering feat. We expect to find many more design wins for this disruptive technology!  Fabbed in STMicroelectronics BCD9 Process.
