    BRCM's LTE baseband chip to compete with QCOM

    In the October 2012 earnings conference call an analyst asked the BRCM CEO about a baseband LTE chip, and the CEO was Very evasive in answering the question. Is this the chip I read about some months ago that will go into Samsung phones and tablets? Perhaps it has been sampled to Apple for its smart phones too? Just look at the question Pitzer asks the CEO and the way he answered it. I am assuming this chip or chip set is to compete with QCOM in LTE baseband.

    John W. Pitzer - Crédit Suisse AG, Research Division
    As then guys, as my follow-up Scott, can you talk a little bit about any update on the LTE baseband? Any milestones you can share with us? And when do you think you'll have sort of volume product in the marketplace?

    Scott A. McGregor - Chief Executive Officer, President and Director

    I think the milestone that you need to look for on LTE is when we announce that with a customer that is shipping. So I apologize, we're going to be in stealth mode until then. But we're certainly working hard on the technology. I stated a number of times that that’s important and believe that's very important for our success going forward. We've got quite a few people working on that, and we think we've got some great products in the chute. And we'll talk about them as they come to market.
