 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I'm designing a board that will later need an Apple Authentication (iAP) chip on it and I would like to reserve space for it however I cannot find any dimensions. I have scoured the Internet but to no avail. I don't want to spend the money yet to join the Apple Developers Program so I'm looking for anyone who may have one that would share it's dimensions or better yet have a schematic.

Thanks,

Mark.

You won't need much space...

Might want to practice your Google-Fu; took me less than three minutes to find that page.

How do you expect to buy the chip?

You might want to read-up on the hardware developer requirements. 

The road to getting approved is a long and difficult one.

Might make more sense to try and source the hacked version from iphone5mod, et. al.

I finally found a picture of it on a BT module.

I got the first page from Bing Images and translated the first page, looked at the location on the pic, then went to the site below to get the board dimensions. From there I figured out that the size is approximately 4.2 x 4mm.
