“Nvidia Corp. has apparently won a major design win for Apple Computer Inc.’s next-generation video iPod product line — at the expense of Broadcom Corp., according to an analyst,” Mark LaPedus reports for EE Times.
LaPedus reports, “Apple’s current video iPod line is said to use an MP3 processor from PortalPlayer Inc. and a multimedia chip from Broadcom. The chip designs have been up for grabs for the next-generation video iPod, which has been delayed and due out in the first half of 2007.”
