Broadcom Corporation is an American fabless semiconductor company in the wireless and broadband communication business. The company is headquartered in Irvine, California. Broadcom was founded by a professor-student pair Henry Samueli and Henry T. Nicholas III from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1991. In 1995, the company moved from its Westwood, Los Angeles, office to Irvine, California. In 1998, Broadcom became a public company on the NASDAQ exchange and now employs approximately 11,750 people worldwide in more than 15 countries.Broadcom is among Gartner's Top 10 Semiconductor Vendors by revenue. In 2012, Broadcom's total revenue was $8.01 billion. In 2013, Broadcom was No. 327 on the Fortune 500, climbing 17 places from its 2012 ranking of No. 344. Broadcom first landed on the Fortune 500 in 2009. Wikipedia.

A three stage transformer coupled amplifier for operation in the 57-64GHz band is presented. The amplifier uses differential capacitive neutralization and low loss transformers to achieve a gain of 30dB at 61GHz. The amplifier has an output compression point of 7.5dBm and a power added efficiency at 1dB compression of 9% at 57GHz. The amplifier has been fabricated in digital CMOS and occupies an area of 0.055mm2. © 2010 IEEE. Source

A theoretical foundation for any turbo interleaver to be a contention-free interleaver to access data in parallel by a butterfly network is presented. A contention-free parallel access of multiple memories in parallel plays a crucial role for implementing high speed turbo decoders for high data rate applications. The presented theoretical analysis shows that a butterfly network has a sufficiently rich permutation structure to be a routing network between parallel decoder units and multiple memories. Thus turbo code design is independent of the designing of a contention-free parallel access by butterfly networks. In particular, a turbo interleaver needs not to provide a built-in contention-free parallel access for any parallel access by butterfly networks. We demonstrate how to apply this theory to turbo interleavers widely used in commercial telecommunication standards. © 1963-2012 IEEE. Source

Techniques are described herein that transfer information using a container-located module. The module is coupled to sensor(s) that are configured to detect characteristic(s) pertaining to a medical substance that is included in a medical container. The module wirelessly transfers information that is based on the characteristic(s) to a requesting device in response to a request from the requesting device.

A system and method providing location based wireless resource identification in a communication system. Various aspects may comprise determining a location of a communication system (e.g., a multimode communication device). One or more wireless resources may then, for example, be identified based, at least in part, on the determined location. Additionally for example, respective manners of communicating with identified wireless resources may be determined and utilized for communication between the communication system and the identified wireless resources. A communication system may, for example, comprise a location determination module adapted to determine a location of the communication device. A wireless resource identification module may, for example, be adapted to identify one or more wireless resources based, at least in part, on the determined location. Also for example, a communication manager module may be adapted to determine respective manners of communicating with the identified wireless resources.

Embodiments provide a method, apparatus and computer program for operating a user equipment (UE). The method beings by determining that a valid authentication for the UE, generated with a radio network operating with a first radio access technology (RAT), is not a mutual authentication between the UE and the network operating with the first RAT. In response, the UE unilaterally takes action to prevent the valid authentication that is not a mutual authentication from being used to authenticate with a radio network operating with a second RAT that utilizes mutual authentication.
