Apple Taps Talent from Broadcom
According to freshly published reports Wednesday, Apple has procured some top industry talent from Broadcom.
Purportedly attracting senior RF engineers from Broadcom, rumors are escalating this morning that the Cupertino, California based tech giant is cultivating a strong new in-house baseband team.
Although we're just learning this week that Apple hired two individuals from the wireless semiconductor company, the engineers in question have now been with Apple, we believe, for several weeks if not months.
Based on details derived from their updated LinkedIn profiles, former Broadcom principal engineer Paul Chang become a senior program manager in February. It also appears that Boadcom veteran Xiping Wang came to Apple in January. Both men were with Broadcom for at least a decade before jumping ship to Apple.
According to details shared by our friends at Apple Insider, Apple has now attracted close to three-dozen talented mid- and senior-level baseband software and hardware engineers from the likes of Broadcom and Qualcomm since Tim Cook became CEO.
