It was ever thus. Broadcom made a large number of acquisitions just over a decade ago. As I remember they were usually paid for with "paper." In other words newly-issued stock certificates. This time around it seems that Broadcom is more prepared to, and able to, pay with cash.

I think the M&A team at Broadcom is working overtime. This is their 6th acquisition in the last 15 months.

Lots of innovation coming out of Israel... as an Israeli, that makes me particularly proud!
