San Francisco| Tech giant Apple has reportedly stopped the development of its in-house Wi-Fi chip ‘for the time being’. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo wrote in a blogpost Thursday that many investors are concerned that the tech giant’s efforts to develop its own Wi-Fi chip could negatively impact Broadcom’s Wi-Fi chip business.
The iPhone maker’s previous development for a Wi-Fi solution was a Wi-Fi only chip and not a Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth combo chip.
From a design perspective, making a Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth combination chip is more difficult than making a Wi-Fi-only chip.
As a result, it will be difficult for the tech giant to replace Broadcom’s combo chips with its own as most of Apple’s products use combo chips.
“The slowdown in processor upgrades is adversely affecting sales of end products (such as the A16 and M2 series chips),” Kuo said.
According to Kuo, the company has focused most of its integrated circuit (IC) design resources on processor development to ensure that the world’s most advanced 3nm processors can smoothly enter mass production in 2023-2025. and performance upgrades and greatly improved power consumption.
He also mentioned that in the next two-three years, ‘Wi-Fi chips will usher in significant Wi-Fi 6e/7 upgrades.’
