ABI Research reports that Broadcom has put into production one of the world’s smallest multimode (GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS) transceivers. The sub 7 sq. mm. 40nm RF chip (BCM2193) was revealed just one week after the discovery of the 40nm RF chip announced last week. Broadcom’s chip was discovered second but it may actually have hit production a week or two prior to the Mediatek solution.
Oscilent has completed the expansion of it’s state-of-the art production facility for RF Filter and standard SAW Filter manufacturing. The expansion increases production capacity by over 26 percent overall solidifying Oscilent’s position as the fourth largest SAW Filter production manufacturer in the world.
