Amid all the trend-setting consumer technology being announced at Mobile World Congress last week, processor giant ARM Holdings Plc. quietly benchmarked its own milestone.
The company, based in Cambridge, U.K., creates and licenses the most ubiquitous chip architecture in the world. Last week, it announced that 50 billion — yes, with a “B”— ARM-powered chips have been shipped by its partners. Here’s another impressive stat they like to share: ARM-based chips are found in nearly 60 percent of the world’s …

The community of open source mobile developers around the world are a vocal bunch – and here at Broadcom we’ve heard their call.
To date, there’s been a dearth of documentation and vendor-developed open source drivers for the graphics subsystems of mobile systems-on-a-chip (SoC). Binary drivers prevent users from fixing bugs or otherwise improving the graphics stack, and complicate the task of porting new operating systems to a device without vendor assistance.
But that’s changing, and Broadcom is taking up …

For most consumers, the smartphone has become the PC replacement, a portable device that allows users to surf the Web, manage email and keep up with their favorite social media.
And yet, while the connectivity technology that powers that smartphone has improved over the years, it still lacks one critical feature that would put it on equal footing with the laptop or tablet PC: a 2×2 MIMO solution.
MIMO, or Multiple Input Multiple Output, is a wireless technology that’s found …

For years now, there’s been buzz about the benefits of a mobile technology called Near Field Communication, or NFC. The short-range communications protocol enables a connection between two devices – smartphone to headset or tablet to TV, for example – through a simple tap. But like many emerging technologies, it sometimes takes a milestone at the component level to fast-forward adoption.
This week, at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona, Broadcom is introducing a next-generation portfolio of NFC controllers …
