The mobile chipmaker expects to be moving to double-antenna 2x2 MIMO technology for mobile phones. Also: a new GPS chip for wearable devices.
Selling millions of wireless chips to giants like Apple and Samsung is much different than selling to thousands of tiny startups crowdsourcing their hardware on Kickstarter, says Broadcom CEO Scott McGregor.
Broadcom's new line of integrated 5G Wi-Fi/Bluetooth chips will make it easier for automakers to add connected features to future cars.
In an in-depth interview, Henry Samueli predicts a lot more bits in our future with multigigabit Wi-Fi, LTE, and home broadband. Moore's Law is a tougher challenge, but Broadcom plans high-end CPUs, too.
At CES 2014, Broadcom announces two new 5G WiFi system-on-a-chips (SoCs) designed to deliver range and speed while using less power from the host device's CPU.
Broadcom's new HomePlug AV2-based power line chips offer up to 1.5Gbps and integrate Wi-Fi in an all-in-one system-on-a-chip approach.
The H.265 video standard, aka HEVC or MPEG-5, squeezes more pixels over a network connection to support new high-resolution 4K TVs. Broadcom's chip supports both and is due to arrive in volume next year.
Designed for 802.11ac wireless, the new 5G chips are being targeted for entry-level devices.
Chipmaking giant will give shareholders $50 per share, representing a nearly 57 percent premium over NetLogic's close of $31.91 on Friday.
D-Link announces two routers that use Broadcom's 802.11ac chip at CES 2013.
