The site believes that ASE Technology will likely land backend orders for packaging the ambient light sensors.
ASE Technology likely to process ALS devices for new AirPods: Apple is expected to incorporate ambient light sensors (ALS) in next-generation AirPods devices in the coming 1-2 years, and Taiwan's ASE Technology may handle the backend process for the new component, as it has moved to purchase more packaging machines, according to industry sources.
Additionally, industry sources tell DigiTimes that ASE Technology will apply its SESUB (semiconductor embedded in substrate)-based SiP packaging technology to next-generation AirPods, after being contracted to handle the high-end mmWave AiP (antenna in package) process for 5G iPhones and tablets.
