Teardown of 3DS reveals the hands of Toshiba, Fujitsu and Invensense

iFixit report
Nintendo's 3D-capable handheld game player is packed full of hardware made by Toshiba, Fujitsu and Invensense according to a tear down carried out by iFixit.

The flash memory chip was provided by Japan's Toshiba, the world's second-largest NAND chip maker after South Korea's Samsung Electronics. The CPU was designed by British firm ARM Holdings and the gyroscope was supplied by U.S.-based Invensense, iFixit said.

But the site had some problems working out the purpose of chips provided by Fujitsu and Texas Instruments. It was impossible to find out what they were. It was not possible to work out who the manufacturers of the lithium ion battery and the 3D liquid crystal display screen were either.

Sharp showed off small 3D screens for glasses-free use at an event last year and this is believed to be the hardware in the 3DS.
