WeissLaw LLP Files Securities Class Action Against Broadcom Corp

WeissLaw LLP announced that it filed a class action lawsuit on August 14, 2015, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, on behalf of the shareholders of Broadcom Corp. against Broadcom, and its Board of Directors for, among other things, violations of section 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint arises out of a May 28, 2015, press release announcing that Broadcom had entered into a definitive merger agreement with Avago Technologies Limited, pursuant to which Broadcom shareholders will receive $54.50 in cash and 0.4378 of an Avago share. The complaint seeks injunctive relief on behalf of the named plaintiffs and all other similarly situated shareholders of Broadcom as of May 28, 2015. The named plaintiffs are represented by WeissLaw LLP. The named plaintiffs allege that certain of the defendants breached their fiduciary duties of loyalty and due care owed to Broadcom shareholders; and in an attempt to secure shareholder approval of the Proposed Transaction, filed a materially false and misleading registration statement on Form S-4 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in violation of the Exchange Act and their fiduciary duties of candor and full disclosure. The omitted and/or misrepresented information is believed to be material to Broadcom shareholders' ability to make an informed decision whether to approve the Proposed Transaction.

Broadcom Corp. Declares Quarterly Dividend, Payable on September 14, 2015

The $0.14 dividend was declared by the Board of Directors on August 13, 2015 and will be paid on September 14, 2015 to holders of record of the Company's Class A and Class B common stock at the close of business on August 28, 2015.

Broadcom Unveils New DOCSIS-Compatible 10G EPON Residential Gateway Platform

Broadcom Corporation has unveiled a new DOCSIS-compatible 10G ethernet passive optical network, or EPON, residential gateway reference design. Broadcom's new platform allows cable Multiple System Operators (MSOs) to provide multi-Gigabit speeds for home subscribers' Video-on-Demand (VOD), HD IPTV, Voice over IP (VoIP) and high-speed Internet via a Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) solution. The new gateway platform combines Broadcom's BCM55030, a 10G/10G EPON Optical Network Unit (ONU) system-on-a-chip (SoC), with the widely deployed BCM33843 DOCSIS 3.0 cable gateway device. Broadcom's new integrated gateway complements traditional technologies, enabling MSOs to quickly provide multi-Gigabit speeds to their subscribers without expensive upgrades to current infrastructure. Broadcom's 10G EPON gateway adheres to the preliminary CableLabs DPoE 2.0 specification, which allows the PON gateway to look and function like a traditional DOCSIS gateway. Built-in 10G symmetric EPON WAN technology supports multi-Gigabit speeds, allowing multiple FTTH subscribers to achieve 1G symmetric performance simultaneously on a single PON. Key features of the BCM55030 include delivering the industry's high EPON ONU integration, including a 10 Gbps media access controller, 10 Gbps EPON serializers/deserializers and forward error correction, a four-port Gigabit Ethernet switch, traffic management, and on-chip memory for both CPU and packet buffers resulting in no external memory components; complying with the IEEE 802.3av 10G EPON standard including support for 10G/10G, 10G/1G and legacy 1G/1G EPON, and supporting Broadcom's 2.5G TURBO-EPON in addition to both standard 1G and 10G modes. Key features of the BCM33843 include delivering 16 downstream channels supporting DOCSIS and/or video and four upstream channels; dedicated DOCSIS CPU supporting double the memory of prior generations, a dedicated multi-threaded applications processor with an over 400% increase in CPU power, and multiple hardware offload engines; Full-Band Capture (FBC) digital tuning technology and remote diagnostics; digital tuning with advanced signal processing techniques, and supporting DOCSIS and digital video on any frequency, eliminating limitations of block tuners.
