Qualcomm today announced the purchase of two different companies and their intellectual property. The CDMA giant will buy the staff and intellectual property of RF Micro Devices' Bluetooth division in order to integrate advanced Bluetooth features into its phone chips. The company also announced the purchase of Airgo, a maker of Wi-Fi chipsets. Qualcomm will use this purchase to integrate 802.11 b/g and n into future phone chipsets as well as a new platform code named Snapdragon. It is likely Airgo's patents on multiple in, multiple out (MIMO) technology made the company even more attractive to Qualcomm, as that is integral to 802.11n as well as many flavors of WiMax.
