Rick: It would be great to have some within Broadcom to comment (or more likely ex-Broadcom as someone still working there might be hesitant). As I said I have many friends at BRCM and INTL/TI and many of my students work there. My sense is that work at Broadcom is more demanding, you are pushed more, but also rewarded more. They basically managed to maintain start-up mentality to a large extent. Intel or Ti is a typical large company where company directions and decision are often not understood by those in the trenches...Kris

These days virtually every electronic consumer product requires WiFi as a feature. I hope it remains a growing market. Broadcom has been designing WiFi and networking SoC designs for a long time and is a very strong engineering company.

Who ever has got place in Apple devices will be successful either before or after getting its place, in case of Broadcom it is a successful company before getting place in Apple Devices.

6.8B in revenues last year. They must be in top 10 I guess. For a relatively young company compared with the likes of Intel,TI,Freescale, it is a big achievement.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
