Cook announced its self -developed chip
Phoenix Technology News Beijing time on August 2 news, Apple has announced a few years ago that it intends to expand its business in San Diego and establish a hardware and software engineering center. Now, Apple has bought a 67 -acre old park that originally belonged to HP, which seems to be its first commercial acquisition in the region. The company is stepping up components such as the self -developed base band chip.
Apple bought HP's old inkjet research laboratory park in St. Diegoland & middot; Benaso community, about 20 miles (about 32 kilometers) from many offices of Qualcomm. According to the "San Diego Joint Forum", Apple spent 445 million US dollars (about 3 billion yuan) to buy this 67.6 -acre park, its name is Ranjo & Middot; Vesta Enterprise Center.
The acquisition seems to indicate that Apple is firmly developing baseband chips and other wireless projects. Shortly after Apple announced its intention to develop its engineering technology, the company announced the acquisition of Intel's smartphone baseband business for $ 1 billion and began to develop its own baseband independently. However, well -known analyst Guo Mingzheng previously said that the efforts of Apple's self -developed base band chip seem to have failed, and the iPhone will continue to use Qualcomm baseband chips.
Apple responded in a statement: "For more than 20 years, we have been part of the San Diego community. As we expand our world -class team, we are glad to continue investing here." The company spokesman refused to make further comment. (Author/Xiao Yu)
