Broadcom Corp. announces three new SoCs powered by HSPA and HSPA+ processors that are designed to enable OEMs to speed production of 3G smartphones at lower costs.

The BCM21654G HSPA/EDGE multimedia base band processor is based on a 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 with HSPA and 720p video. The BCM21664T base band processor is based on a 1.2GHz Dual ARM Cortex A9 with HSPA+ 1,080p video. And the BCM28145/155 base band processors are based on 1.2GHz Double-Dual ARM A9 with HSPA+ 1,080p video.

Broadcom offers multiple customisation options by refining the platforms to account for device variations and pre-qualifying hardware component vendors. This cuts time to market to about three months, during which time handset makers can focus on developing value-added features to deliver quality of experience on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the Android 4.1/4.2 Jelly Bean OS. The chips also offer wireless connectivity technologies, including Miracast and NFC.

All three platforms are sampling to early access partners, with volume production expected in December.
