System-on-a-chip extraordinaire, Qualcomm, have posted their Q1 2012 financial results, with a very nice $4.68 billion in revenue for Q1, a 40-percent increase year-over-year, and 14-percent higher than just last quarter.

Profits were up, too, at $1.4 billion, a 20-percent increase year-over-year, and a 33-percent increase sequentially. MSM chip shipments were great for Qualcomm, seeing 156 million units shipped, a 23-percent increase from last year. September quarter total reported device sales are quite staggering, with approximately $41.4 billion in sales, up 22-percent year-over-year and 6-percent sequentially.

 

Qualcomm's cash equivalents and marketable securities now total $22 billion at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2012.

 

Qualcomm are going quite well, and I think this year will see a continuation of that effort.
