High-End Audio Amplifiers Mix with Core Chipsets from Most of the Major Chipset Suppliers

The very high-end audio market is still governed by key chips that are not part of the "complete" chipset solution. In two recent high-end flagship teardowns, the Cirrus Logic CS35L36 was found. The Google Pixel 3 utilizes two CS35L36A audio amplifiers and a CS40L20 (Haptic driver) alongside a popular Qualcomm chipset (SDM845). Dual CS35L36 amplifiers can also be found in the Huawei Mate 20, which is built around the HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset.
