Is there a Broadcom chip that works out of the box for things like WiFi/Bluetooth prior to OS X Yosemite, but also supports things like AirDrop in later versions? I'm looking for a Broadcom chip that has long term support over a lot OS versions.

apple is cutting out support to older macs over the time so you need a card from the newest possible mac pro (6,1 from 2008) that supports yosemite. That card might not be supported in high sierra though. You need to ease your requirements.

I disagree.

Just going to make a note here for anyone that might be interested, the Broadcom BCM94360CD appears to fit this criteria.
