Vijay Nagarajan's biography

Thursday, March 1, 2007

Vijay Nagarajan is a Product Manager at Broadcom Corporation, Sunnyvale and works to define and productize future Wi-Fi solutions. Prior to his role at Broadcom, he was a systems engineer at Atheros Communications, a Santa Clara-based wireless semiconductor company. At Atheros, he was an active part of the company’s efforts to bring state-of-the-art Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled wireless devices to the world. Previously, he was with Denver-based Tensorcomm, a start-up providing advanced receiver solutions for CDMA-based 3G networks.

Vijay has over 20 published patent applications with the USPTO and the WIPO. These inventions span mobile receiver architecture and design techniques for 3G and 4G networks. Vijay also has 6 peer-reviewed international technical papers, including IEEE publications, in coding techniques for wireless and storage systems. He also reviews technical conference submissions in these areas.

While at Tensorcomm, Vijay was also actively involved in the 3GPP standards-body activities and in chalking the company's IP roadmap. His first-hand experience observing, participating and negotiating in the complex mobile value chain – the carriers, the handset vendors and the chipset vendors – have given him an understanding of the geopolitical alignment, impact of new technology, successful business models, financial modeling and competitive landscape in the mobile wireless space. Through his incisive writing in his blog - Wireless Industry Analyst, Vijay attempts to marry these insider insights and unique perspectives with his penchant for market research and analysis. The blog, Vijay hopes, will create ‘impact through information.’

Vijay’s articles are currently syndicated by Seeking Alpha and Yahoo Finance. Vijay also collaborates with Sramana Mitra to understand the mobile chipset vendor matrix. His valuation series on Qualcomm, InterDigital, Broadcom, Texas Instruments and Marvell are well-read and perhaps the most comprehensive techno-financial analysis published online. To arrange syndications or columns, please email him.

Vijay holds an M.S(EE) degree from the University of Colorado, Boulder and a B.S degree from the College of Engineering, Guindy, (Anna University) India.
