DESCRIPTION
[Sold to Avago Technologies]

Broadcom Corporation provides semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications. Its products offer voice, video, data, and multimedia connectivity in the home, office, and mobile environments. The company operates in two segments: Broadband and Connectivity, and Infrastructure and Networking.

Year founded: 1991
Revenue: $8.4 billion (2014)
NASDAQ: BRCM
The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to grow to include more than 50 billion devices by 2020 – and Broadcom’s out-of-the-box connectivity platforms are providing developers with the tools to kick-start their life-changing devices. As a leader in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart, Broadcom ensures that standards-based connectivity technologies play nicely together.

With all of that embedded hardware engineering already complete, Broadcom’s hardware and software development kits help to quickly turn creative IoT ideas quickly into prototypes and ready-for-market devices for both large and small companies.

Interoperability is critical to the proliferation of IoT, which is why the WICED platform is bringing secure Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) wireless connectivity to nearly every emerging product category in the IoT ecosystem, including home appliances, health and fitness monitors, automation and asset tracking systems, smart meters and an array of consumer electronics devices.

Hardware
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
IoT power supplies include traditional, thin-film and printed batteries, energy harvesting modules, flexible photovoltaic panels and thermoelectric sources.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
Middleware integrates the diverse components of an IoT application by structuring communication, workflows, and business rules.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
