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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
