Apple looking to buy Japanese chipmaker

SILICON VALLEY -- Apple is in talks with Japan's Renesas Electronics to take over a unit that designs chips for smartphone displays, whose engineering may help it improve image sharpness and battery life.

     With its share of the smartphone market slipping, Apple seems to want to bring this core technology in-house rather than cede development to the supplier as the U.S. company has for much of its growth.
