Broadcom rubs his hands. The California wireless components specialist has announced the signing of two multi-year contracts for the delivery of a set of high performance components and modules for Apple. These two deals complete a first similar agreement signed last year. In all, Broadcom will supply Apple chips until 2023. The amount of these three agreements makes you dizzy: $ 15 billion.
Broadcom is an essential partner for the manufacturer of Cupertino. We find indeed its radio chips in the iPhone, iPad and AppleWatch. It was rumored last December that Apple could make an offer to buy the Wi-Fi / GPS chips division that Broadcom is looking to sell. Obviously, Apple intends to remain a client of this Broadcom activity rather than an owner.
