威盛專利賣聯發科 百億入袋

處理器廠威盛透過子公司手機晶片廠威睿電通(VIA Telecom),將 CDMA2000 專利授權給聯發科,威睿將可收取 3 ~ 3.5 億美元(逾新台幣 100 億元)的授權金,威盛因認列該授權金 50 億元收益,對每股淨利挹注超過 10 元,等於大賺逾一個股本。 近期手機供應鏈傳出,威盛旗下手機晶片廠威睿已將 CDMA2000 專利授權給聯發科,聯發科在取得授權後,將可推出支援 TD-SCDMA/WCDMA/CDMA2000 的 3 模手機系統單晶片,以及加入 4G 規格的 6 模手機晶片。對聯發科來說,因為補齊了 3G 專利缺口,不僅可以與高通正式對決,因為三星採用威睿晶片多年,聯發科也可因此直接打入三星智慧型手機供應鏈。 但對此一消息,威盛及聯發科均表示,不回應市場傳言。 相關業者指出,CDMA2000 規格市場尚有 5 億支的功能型手機尚未轉換至智慧型手機,以手機業界專利授權經驗推估,此次威盛及威睿將 CDMA2000 專利授權給聯發科,聯發科付出的授權金將達 3 ~ 3.5 億美元(約逾新台幣 100 億元)。由於威盛持股威睿近 … Continue reading
