Apple signs multi-billion dollar modem deal with Broadcom

Apple announced today that it has inked a long-term, multi-billion dollar deal with Broadcom. As part of this collaboration, Broadcom will develop 5G RF components, including Film Bulk-wave Acoustic Resonators (FBAR) filters, 5G modems and other components for wireless communication systems. All components are designed and manufactured at Broadcom’s numerous manufacturing and technology centers in the United States.

“We are thrilled to be making a commitment that leverages the ingenuity, creativity and innovative spirit of American Madesaid Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. — All Apple products are based on technology designed and manufactured right here in the United States, and we will continue to increase our investment in the US economy because of our unwavering belief in America’s future.”

Apple provides more than 1,100 jobs at Broadcom’s FBAR filter manufacturing facility in Fort Collins, and this partnership will allow Broadcom to continue investing in mission-critical automation projects and enhance the skills of technicians and engineers. Apple supports more than 2.7 million direct jobs nationwide, including iOS app developers, and works with more than 9,000 U.S. suppliers and manufacturers of all sizes in all 50 states.

5G technology is shaping the future of next-gen consumer electronics, and Apple is spending tens of billions of dollars developing this space in the US. The investment is part of Apple’s commitment to invest $430 billion in the US economy over five years in 2021. Today, Apple is on track to meet its goal through head-to-head comparisons with U.S. suppliers, data center investments, U.S. capital expenditures, and other domestic spending.

After introducing 5G technology to Apple devices in 2020, Apple has helped expand and accelerate 5G adoption across the country, driving innovation and creating more jobs for companies that support 5G innovation and infrastructure. 5G coverage and performance also continues to grow around the world, with more users benefiting from faster connectivity as they upgrade to 5G-enabled products.
