iPhone 5 to Use Power Management Chip by Dialog Semiconductor - Report

An Asian source is reporting that Apple may use power management chips designed by Dialog Semiconductor and manufactured by TSMC, making their way into the next-generation of iPhones.

Taiwanese trade publication DigiTimes cites a Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) report as saying that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) “has secured orders from Dialog Semiconductor for its power management chips used in Apple's upcoming devices.”

TSMC has reportedly cut into the supply chain for the iDevices that are currently available to the market by providing foundry services for Broadcom, CSR, Cirrus Logic and Qualcomm.

The backend services for the Dialog chips manufactured at TSMC will reportedly be provided by Siliconware Precision Industries (SPIL).

It is unclear exactly what added benefits these new chips will bring.
