Broadcom Corporation was an American fabless semiconductor company that made products for the wireless and broadband communication industry.It was acquired by Avago Technologies in 2016 and currently operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of the merged entity called Broadcom Limited.Dell Power Connect classics) while other well-known vendors do use the Broadcom hardware but write their own firmware.The latest Broadcom Trident ASIC is used in many high-speed 10Gb switches from the largest switch-vendors such as Cisco Nexus switches running NX-OS, Video Core is the GPU found on some systems-on-a-chip (So C)s by Broadcom, the most widely known one being the BCM2835 containing Video Core IV found in the Raspberry Pi. Broadcom "BCM43" series chips provide Wi Fi support in many Android and i Phone devices.
The deal combined Broadcom's developer tools and connectivity technologies for Io T devices with Cypress' own programmable system-on-a-chip (So C) products that provide memory, computing and graphics processing for low-power devices.
As part of the settlement, Qualcomm paid 1 million in cash to Broadcom over a four-year period ending June 2013. They found that these Qualcomm microchips infringe patents owned by Broadcom.
The Broadcom logo was designed by Eliot Hochberg, based on the logo for the company's previous name, Broadband Telecom.
In April 2017, Google's Project Zero investigated Broadcom's So C Wi Fi stack and found that it lacked "all basic exploit mitigations - including stack cookies, safe unlinking and access permission protection," allowing "full device takeover by Wi-Fi proximity alone, requiring no user interaction." Since the release of the 2.6.26 kernel some Broadcom chips have kernel support but require external firmware to be built.
In 2003 the Free Software Foundation accused Broadcom of not complying with the GNU General Public License as Broadcom distributed GPL code in a driver for its 802.11g router chipset without making that code public.
