Wired and wireless communications solutions provider Broadcom Corporation has recently unveiled what it touts to be the smallest 4G LTE-Advanced modem. Specifically tooled for the LTE market, the BCM21892 multi-mode multi-band solution delivers the features, power and performance capabilities for the development of next generation 4G LTE smartphones.

Compliant with all 3GPP specifications, the BCM21892 combines a full-featured cellular base band with a world-band radio in a footprint that is approximately 35 per cent smaller than current industry solutions. Advanced power management techniques save up to 25 per cent of the power typically consumed during data transmissions to the network. The new modem also supports LTE Category 4 speeds of 150Mbit/s[1], operates in any 3GPP network and performs seamless hand-offs between the various 4G LTE, 3G and 2G interface technologies.

"Broadcom's new 4G LTE modem combined with our Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC technologies gives OEMs all the communications technologies needed to build advanced devices that will offer consumers the features, speed and functionality they demand in their next smartphone purchase," said Robert A. Rango, Broadcom executive vice president and general Manager, mobile and wireless group. "Broadcom's 4G LTE modem will also help carriers drive new 4G LTE features, such as carrier aggregation, into commercial networks."
