Broadcom Unveils Portfolio of Turnkey Designs

Enabling OEMs to speed up production of 3G smartphones, Broadcom (News - Alert) has introduced three new turnkey solutions.

These new platforms work on HSPA and HSPA+ processors which have been proven on various carrier networks all over the world. They consist of well known hardware components and software applications that have been tested and accepted by regional operator needs. 

Broadcom provides various customization options and decreases the time to market by improving the platforms for device variations and pre-qualifying hardware component vendors. This enables handset manufacturers to focus on developing value-added features and inexpensively provide a quality Android (News - Alert) experience, across various smartphone product tiers, in about three months or less.

Broadcom is developing solutions that support the next generation of 3G and 4G high-speed mobile technologies. Broadcom provides a family of HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access), WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple-Access), EDGE (Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution), GPRS (General Packet Radio Services) and GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) baseband processors.

“Broadcom's processors already drive an enhanced user experience on Android smartphones worldwide, and we are committed to continuing to help our customers deliver timely, differentiated, and affordable products,” said Rafael Sotomayor, Vice President, Mobile Platform Solutions. “Our turnkey platforms go beyond basic functionality by integrating advanced features previously reserved for high-end phones such as NFC, Wi-Fi direct, advanced multimedia performance, and imaging capabilities.”

Broadcom's new knowledge-based processors provide up to 24x greater performance than competing solutions in the most demanding applications and is created to meet the scalability and efficiency demands of 3G/4G mobile infrastructure, data center and enterprise environments. Continued exponential growth in hosted services is driving the demand for increased classification along with evolving trends.
