Cellular chip maker Qualcomm is buying WiFi chipmaker Atheros for $3.1 billion, or $45 per share, the companies announced today. The deal, the largest ever for Qualcomm, is expected to close sometime in the first half of the year. T

Atheros, a WiFi innovator, has a growing presence in Asia and Europe. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth have become standard features in portable consumer devices, including tablets, handheld games and media players, and Qualcomm now can utilize that strength.
