Broadcom Corp. has completed the acquisition of Zyray Wireless Inc., a provider of baseband coprocessors addressing WCDMA mobile devices.

Zyray's SPINNERchip technology, which is currently being integrated into several handset designs, enables data device manufacturers to bring true 3G mobile communications products to market rapidly. Pairing the SPINNERchip technology with Broadcom's single-chip EDGE/GPRS/GSM and GPRS/GSM baseband processors will enable two-chip WCDMA multimode phones in the near term and provides the potential for future solutions with enhanced integration.

Broadcom offers a broad portfolio of mobile communications baseband processors, reference designs and cellular software protocol stacks. The addition of Zyray's products and technologies enables Broadcom to offer complete WCDMA and HSDPA (high speed downlink packet access) baseband solutions and provides Broadcom with the opportunity to add multi-in, multi-out (MIMO) transceiver technology to a broad spectrum of mobile and wireless technologies.
