Hardware, Embedded Systems And yet another item on the iPad? Are we serious? Yes, we are, since this one is about something that even geeks who aren't interested in the iPad itself should find intriguing. Steve Jobs said yesterday that the iPad is powered by an Apple A4 processor, but contrary to what many seem to think - it wasn't designed in-house at all.

So my wild guess

I made on a tech forums was right, it's basically the same thing as a TI OMAP4 series chip.

Of course, am I the only one laughing at a single-tasking OS sitting atop a multi-core A9?

I've been wondering who REALLY makes it - Apple pulling fabs out of it's backside seems fishy, so who is it REALLY? TI? Samsung?

No real reason for them to waste their in-house art ****'s on chip design for something TI can already provide out of existing stock.
