Last week, our friends at RCR Wireless stopped in the Broadcom’s booth at Mobile World Congress to see our latest tech innovations. The result was a series of compelling video interviews with Broadcom engineers that look at the top trends for mobile technology on display at the show, including GPS, 4G LTE networks and more.
First up, Broadcom Senior Technical Director of GPS Frank Van Diggelen explains what geofencing tech is all about and why Broadcom’s technology will soon be ubiquitous in phones and tablets:
Next, we have Punit Awatramani, a test engineer in Broadcom’s Mobile and Wireless Group, demonstrating a speed test for the latest Broadcom 28 nanometer processor chipset for 2G, 3G, and 4G cellular networks:
The carrier aggregation capabilities of Broadcom’s 4G LTE advanced modem are on display in this next video. Ajay Wadhawan, associate technical director from Broadcom’s Mobile & Wireless Group, shows how carrier aggregation allows two non-contiguous bands of spectrum to run at the same time:
Finally, what good is all that speed and spectrum crunch-busting tech, if it sucks the life out of the phone’s battery? Broadcom’s chip not only solves that problem, but also accounts for giant battery drain that comes from streaming media on a 4G LTE processor. Broadcom’s Wadhawan explains how software embedded into the Broadcom chip manages to be 25 percent more power efficient than competitors’ offerings:
