Chip maker Broadcom introduced its newest addition to the company’s growing mobile chipsets lineup. Say hello to the budget Smartphone loving quad-core BCM23550 chipset.
At the ARM TechCon which is being held in Santa Clara, CA the company introduced its first processors based on 64-bit ARMv8 architecture. Under the name Cortex-A53 and -A57, the company plans to usher itself into the microserver era, where it won't face competition from Intel until 2016.
At the first day of Siggraph 2012, which is taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Khronos group announced the new iterations of OpenGL API for conventional computers and consoles (OpenGL), as well as mobile devices (OpenGL ES).
It's easy to forget that the Internet is connected via a vast amount of switches and routers and with an ever increasing bandwidth demand as we get more and more connected devices, this backbone of the internet needs constant upgrades. Broadcom has announced a new product that should help boost the speed of the internet
Taiwanese Edimax is generally known as a company that is offering budget routers with fairly antiquated UI's, but the company is working on new 802.11ac hardware that is looking like a big step up from its current hardware. Edimax has teamed up with Broadcom for the hardware and its initial products will feature simultaneous dual
When it comes to GPS chips, Broadcom isn't the first company we think of, but its latest addition to its growing family of GPS chips – or GNSS receivers as they are starting to become known as with additional navigation systems launching – offers indoor navigation with the help of "other wireless technologies".
The ARM SoC market space for the mobile market is getting crowded, but it doesn't seem to stop Broadcom getting into the game with several new models optimized for Android 4.0. The company has announced the BCM28155, BCM28145 and BCM21654G at the MWC, all based on ARM's Cortex-A9 core.
One big growth area for computing these days is the automotive industry and we're not talking about things like the engine management system here, but rather about things like navigation, entertainment and something known as ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems). One problem that has cropped up is that it's getting costly to implement all of
One feature where smartphones and tablets are generally lagging behind notebooks is in Wi-Fi connectivity, as most devices are stuck at speeds of around 65Mbps. This is because of various limitations of the Wi-Fi chips used, but now Broadcom seems to have a couple of solutions that should remedy this, while being cost effective.
Broadcom's CTO, Henry Samueli, said at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas that the company is developing high-end smartphone processor chips for release by the end of this year.
It's already been five years since 802.11n arrived, although back then in its draft standard and things have progressed slowly since then, although some 450Mbps hardware started to show up last year. This year looks set to be the launch for the 802.11ac standard, also known as 5G WiFi which promises Gigabit speeds, better coverage,
Just ahead of CES, Broadcom has announced four new solutions related to Smart TVs which will be displayed at the show. Some of the chips are intended for integration inside the TV unit while others are destined for media streamers or what Broadcom calls Over-the-Top media players.
Rambus has secured a patent licensing agreement with Broadcom over the use of integrated circuit (IC) technology, marking yet another of the company's lucrative deals.
Don't you just hate when your wireless peripherals run out of battery? And there's never a spare set around when you need them either. Well, this may soon just be a bad memory, at last if Broadcom has anything to do with it, as the company has developed a new Bluetooth low energy based chip
You might be wondering what Wi-Fi Direct is and to put it in really simple terms, it does pretty much what Bluetooth does, just at Wi-Fi speeds. Ok, so it's not quite that simple, but at least it's the basic theory of how it works and Broadcom was showing off some really cool demoes at
