Inside the World’s First 4G Phone – the HTC EVO 4G Smart Phone

Ottawa, Ontario — June 11, 2010 — Chipworks ( www.chipworks.com), the world’s leader in reverse engineering and patent infringement analysis for semiconductors and microelectronic systems, has done a silicon level teardown of the world’s first 4G phone, the HTC EVO 4G. For complete details and links to in-depth reports, visit http://www.chipworks.com//HTC-EVO-Teardown.aspx. A snapshot of the findings follows.

Qualcomm has three major socket winners on the board including:

  • Qualcomm QSD8650 Snapdragon

  • Qualcomm RTR6500 CDMA2000 transceiver

  • Qualcomm PM7540 power management IC
Texas Instruments racks-up two more design wins with a leading-edge 3.5 G or greater phone:
  • The TPS65051 6-channel power management IC with 2 DC/DCs, 4 LDOs, in 4x4mm QFN is the second TI PMIC

  • TI65200 Power Management IC for digital cameras
Sequans Communications is showing its strength in the market:
  • Sequans Communications 65 nm SQ1210 Wimax single chip solution that delivers baseband and Triple-band RF: 2.3-2.4, 2.5-2.7, 3.3-3.8 GHz operability - this device debuts in the world’s first 4G phone; Chipworks is working on a complete Functional Analysis Report
Atmel scores another touch screen controller win:
  • The Atmel MXT224, part of the maXTouch ™ family of touch screen controllers
Two design wins for OmniVision:
  • OmniVision OV8812 8 Mp image sensor (suspected from die analysis but this superficial analysis is insufficient to 100% confirm that it is not the OV8810)

  • OmniVision OV261 1.3 Mp image sensor
