The small Asian company currently supplies its components to HTC and, if the rumor is true, it could win a contract for their offer in the production ofiGadgets.
By the end of the year, when the start of production / launch of the iPhone 5 is expected, Capella should become an Apple supplier in the sale of sensors for the company's smartphone, in addition to future generations of iPads and iPods touch. Another company, Integrated Memory Logic, should start selling other types of integrated circuits to Ma in the same period.
