Broadcom has introduced the industry’s smallest 4G LTE-Advanced modem, designed for the 4G LTE market, the BCM21892 .
Compliant with all 3GPP specifications, the BCM21892 combines a cellular baseband with a world-band radio in a footprint that is approximately 35 percent smaller than current industry solutions, says the company.
The new modem also supports LTE Category 4 speeds of 150Mbps, operates in any 3GPP network, and performs hand-offs between the various 4G LTE, 3G and 2G interface technologies.
BCM21892 is now sampling to early access Broadcom customers, with anticipated production in 2014.
