Ina Fried of AllThingsD, is reporting that Broadcom is set to launch a new their first LTE Chip, which would be smaller than what is currently on the market. Qualcomm is currently dominant LTE Chips maker in the industry.
The chip, which it is sampling now and is set for volume production next year, is said to be a third smaller than many rival chips, while supporting all the key standards and technologies. Among its features is support for voice calls over LTE, as well as a feature to bond together different frequencies that a carrier has into one faster pipeline onto the Internet.
According to the report, Broadcom CEO Scott McGregor said in an interview believes the company is on to a winner.
“Other people have announced some chips that maybe nibble away at the low end of the market,” McGregor said.“The real goal here is to create a product that really is a world chip for the flagship smartphones and tablets.”
