Does ifixit do chip teardowns, or does anyone else for that matter ? Would like to understand the inner workings of the w1 chip in terms of sending and receiving signals and power saving methods. Evidence points to edgewater wireless's technology being inside the chip/airpods, who can confirm this somehow?
Check out edgewater wireless. They specialize in wifi technology , multichannel wireless , reducing interference, etc. they hold 24 patents. A lot of their tech applies to any wireless protocol. In 2015, apple bought a patent off them for front end power effiency ( us patent 7016654).The deal had “strong commercial terms attached “. I beleive it is Edgewater’s tech that apple used to enhance the airpods when they were designing them with the patents acquired during the passif semiconductor acquisition. Confident that we will see technology from edgewaters patents inside the w1 chip. It would be what gives the airpods the incredible battery life, amazing connectivity, and the ability to sync a seperate signal to each pod with no interference. How do you get to the bottom of the inner workings of a chip in order to discover these patents?
