IRVINE, Calif. –– Broadcom Corporation (Nasdaq: BRCM), a global leader in wired and wireless broadband communications semiconductors, today announced the opening of a new design center in Copenhagen, Denmark. The center will develop technology for Broadcom’s Mobile & Wireless Group, including handsets that will feature 2G and 3G cellular and Bluetooth® technologies as well as mobile multimedia capabilities.

“The opening of this design center expands our engineering capabilities to support our growing mobile and wireless business in Europe,” said Robert A. Rango, Group Vice President for Broadcom’s Mobile & Wireless Group. “The cellular and wireless markets represent large potential markets for Broadcom. Being strategically located near some of Europe’s largest cellular equipment manufacturers will enable us to work more closely with them in developing next-generation mobile solutions.”

“We assisted Broadcom in the establishment of this design center and believe the center will prove to be a valuable asset for the company. There is a perfect match between relevant and available talent in the region, supported by a high degree of cost efficiency and geographical vicinity to mobile and wireless market opportunities in Northern Europe,” said Allan Haugsted, Invest in Denmark, Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, “Furthermore, Broadcom’s decision to locate its first wireless European design center in Copenhagen is a great asset to the region. Broadcom’s position as a leading player in mobile and wireless technologies will significantly strengthen Denmark’s competitiveness in these areas.”
