Qualcomm co-founder Franklin Antonio, whose company helped revolutionize
communications, dies

Franklin Antonio, the UC San Diego graduate who co-founded chipmaker
Qualcomm, helping fan the growth of everything from cellphones to
social media to wearable medical devices, has died, the company said
late Friday.

Qualcomm did not say when, where or why the 69-year-old Antonio died.

"I'm very sad to share that Franklin Antonio, EVP & Chief Scientist,
Emeritus, has passed away," Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon told workers in
an internal message.

"As employee #7, Franklin was one of Qualcomm's original founders and
our longest-serving employee," the message read.

Knowledge may be power, but communications is the key
