The Apple Pencil, which launched alongside the iPad Pro back in November 2015, has impressed with its accuracy, and unsurprisingly, it needs a lot of hardware inside for this kind of performance. In fact, the Pencil contains 15 semiconductors to control the stylus' interaction with the tablet, orientation, and more.
Chipworks got their hands on a Pencil and took it apart, gathering information about which companies supplied the parts for the stylus.
A previous teardown by iFixit also went in-depth on the Pencil, noting the tiny, folding logic board on which all of this silicon sits. You can read about Chipworks' progress in delving into the Pencil at the link below.

I feel like you're just recycling old articles. iMore already covered this a few weeks ago when iFixIt did it. Who cares that Chipworks did it too? They weren't first, so it doesn't matter.
