The rise of custom chips by Apple (AAPL) and other electronics giants is a risk to chip makers such as Qualcomm (QCOM), writes Wells Fargo analyst David Wong in a note to clients yesterday afternoon. Wong is referring to parts such as the “A11 Bionic” processor running Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone X, which is designed by Apple and used only by itself, a practice known in the industry as a "captive" part, versus chips sold on the open market for use by anyone, known as "merchant" sales. In addition to an overall slowing smartphone market Wong writes that, "we think that the growing using of internally designed chips by the biggest smartphone companies is creating a headwind to growth for merchant chip companies that make smartphone applications processors and baseband chips,” writes Wong.
