Zacks Equity Research

Leading semiconductor solutions provider Broadcom Corporation (BRCM) recently introduced the industry's first triple speed 10/40/100G Lite physical layer transceiver (Lite-PHY) for high-density data center applications.

The BCM82322 Lite-PHY is fabricated in 28 nanometer (nm) complementary metal oxide semiconductor (:CMOS) technology and consumes 50% less power than other similar products available in the market with the highest port count density. These transceivers optimize high-speed routing functions and eases out the board design for server and network equipment manufacturers.

There is a growing demand for 10/40/100G ports and Broadcom continues to meet this demand by developing devices which are ideally suited for these requirements. With this product line, the company aims to deliver the highest level of performance and integration facilities while significantly reducing power consumption. Broadcom is focused on innovative technologies related to connectivity, bandwidth and content, which enable it to capture a sizeable market share. This new product line is an initiative in this endeavor.

Broadcom is also well placed in the fast-growing wired and wireless communications markets, with other cutting-edge solutions for a growing number of connected users, who are demanding more content and bandwidth. These include a portfolio of system-on-a-chip (SoC) and software solutions to manufacturers of computing and networking equipment, digital entertainment and broadband access products, and mobile devices

Based in Irvine, Calif, Broadcom is engaged in designing and marketing semiconductor components of network voice, video, and data traffic for various applications.

Broadcom currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Other stocks that look promising and are worth a look in the industry include FORMFactor Inc. (FORM), Himax Technologies Inc. (HIMX) and Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDTI), each carrying a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
