Wifi teardown was missed

Actually, there is a Broadcom part on one of the modules but looks like Ifixit.com totally miss it ... see other provider of information :

http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/...

hopefully this should be corrected so the teardown is more accurate.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I added the info here. We didn't miss the chip, it's just that we didn't find its appearance in the iPhone 4 significant. It is the same exact chip found in the GSM iPhone 4, and we mentioned previously on that same step in the iPhone 4 Verizon teardown that the Wi-Fi setup was one part of the RF system that wasn't revamped between the GSM and Verizon iPhones. Regardless, the information is now on the step.

The MDM6600(on page 95) calls for a 19.2MHz Clock, which is generated by the PM IC PM8028.

32.768kHz RTC is used on every phone.

No problemo, thanks for pointing it out! I added some more info to this step that shows the chip's probable location. I saw that you got a TechInsights employee to correct that EE Times article, nice work ;)
