1100 workers in a new Austin Texas facility produce the latest Apple processor for iOS devices.

The A5 processor – the brain in the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 – is now made in a sprawling 1.6 million square feet factory in Austin owned by Korean electronics giant Samsung Electronics, according to people familiar with the operation.

One of the few major components to be sourced from within the United States, the A5 processor is built by Samsung in a newly constructed $3.6 billion non-memory chip production line that reached full production in early December.

Made in the US, perhaps so the A5 performance can’t be copied by Korean based Samsung as easily?
