Marvell's New Advanced BGA SSD Controller Doubles the Performance of Best-in-Class DRAM-less Controllers
Marvell has expanded its solid-state drive (SSD) portfolio with its new 88NV1160 Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) Express DRAM-less SSD controller. The new controller doubles the performance of best-in-class DRAM-less controllers, and provides industry-leading performance-per-Watt and up to 1600MB/s read speeds. Optimized for a new generation of slim computing devices such as high-performance tablets and ultrabooks, the new devices advance the deployment of Host Memory Buffer technology, a feature that enhances system memory utilization, reduces total system cost and lowers power consumption. Marvell made the announcement at the recent Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, CA, and participated in a keynote presentation, " Managing Multi-Tiered Non-Volatile Memory Systems for Cost and Performance" at the conference.

Introducing the Industry's Most Optimized 25GbE End-to-End Data Center Technology
As data centers increase bandwidth speeds to keep up with the massive flow of data coming through the cloud, they must also balance the capital and operational expenditures associated with moving to next-generation networks. Marvell's 25GbE end-to-end data center solution offers the benefits of enhanced computer and storage efficiency at a long-term cost structure similar to 10GbE. Until now, the market has lacked specific solutions designed optimally for the 25GbE data center. Now, with the launch of Marvell's Prestera® 98CX84xx family of 25G Ethernet (GbE) switches and Alaska® C 88X5123 and 88X5113 Ethernet transceivers, data centers transitioning to 25GbE speeds can utilize an optimized and cost-efficient end-to-end solution.

Two New Community Boards Target Growing Trends In Networking
Marvell is excited to be working with innovative partners to launch two new community board initiatives based on Marvell's high-performance, ARM-based ARMADA® processors. These initiatives are designed to bring together a cost-effective and high-performance single-board computing platform and open source software for developers and designers working with a host of networking, storage and connectivity applications.
Marvell ESPRESSOBin Board Available on Kickstarter
Recently, Marvell's partner, Globalscale Technologies, launched the Marvell® ESPRESSOBin  Board on Kickstarter. The ESPRESSOBin Board is a low-cost, high-performance 64-bit dual core, low power-consuming networking computing platform that utilizes Marvell's ARMADA 3700 chipset based on the ARMv8 architecture. The launch of the Marvell ESPRESSOBin Board has more than 500 backers thus far and is fully funded.
Visit the Kickstarter campaign to be one of the first to connect to the Marvell ESPRESSObin community and discover the exciting use cases that you can deploy with the Marvell ESPRESSOBin Board: LEARN MORE >
ARMADA 8040 Networking Community Board:  A Cost-Effective, High-Performance Solution
In collaboration with ARM, Marvell has introduced the ARMADA 8040 networking community board, a cost-effective and high-performance hardware platform based on open source software for the OpenDataPlane (ODP), OpenFastPath (OFP) and ARM network functions virtualization (NFV) ecosystem communities. The new community board is powered by the Marvell ARMADA 8040, a scalable, virtual System-on-Chip (vSoC) that supports a wide range of IP appliances, secured routers, and virtual customer premises equipment (vCPE). In addition, applications for unified control, data plane and NFV for enterprises and data centers are also supported. The ARMADA 8040 vSoC is based on a quad-core ARM® Cortex ®-A72 processor and includes full CPU and I/O virtualization, an advanced networking packet processor and enables rich state-of-the-art connectivity.

Family of New PHY Products Overcome Challenges of Harsh Environments
Traditionally, Ethernet has been used in enterprise applications such as office environments. However, the IEEE 802.3 family of standards is constantly evolving. Industrial networks present their own set of challenges and Ethernet, with its components, is evolving again to address the needs of the factory floor. Connectivity hardware that can offer low-latency, enhanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection while operating in extended temperature environments is invaluable to industrial network implementation. The Marvell® 88E1510P/88E1512P/88E1510Q family of PHY (physical layer device) products was designed from the ground up in collaboration with leaders in industrial automation and has been vetted for use in the most demanding industrial applications.   READ BLOG >
Marvell Drives Innovation in High-Speed Automotive Ethernet
Marvell high-speed networking becomes a reality for automotive applications with the availability of Gigabit Ethernet over a single pair of twisted-pair copper wire, paving the way for high-speed networking within a vehicle. Last November, Marvell delivered the first samples based on the IEEE 1000BASE-T1 pre standard specification for verification of performance in vehicles. The 1000BASE-T1 standard allows high-speed and bi-directional data traffic over light-weight, low-cost, single-pair cable harnesses. This feature enables car companies to create a whole new array of exciting automotive features and benefits such as autonomous driving. Early chip samples from Marvell allow auto makers the ability to evaluate the performance of this new standard and identify possible issues early in the application development process, prior to production, to accelerate time-to-market.   READ BLOG >

Frontier Silicon and Libre Wireless Choose Marvell DHMR Technology
Frontier Silicon is including Marvell's Dynamic Multi-Hop Relay (DMHR) technology in its new Google Cast™-enabled smart audio module, Minuet. DMHR is a new technology which allows Wi-Fi® multi-room speakers to form a chain where each device can receive streaming audio from the previous link in the chain - rather than an individual speaker only receiving content from a single router or access point (AP). LEARN MORE >
In addition, Libre Wireless Technologies implements Marvell's DMHR technology into its LibreSync  platform to bring unique, real world value to consumer electronic products. Wi-Fi devices are now able to support a robust extended wireless coverage by intelligently linking and sharing data or audio/video in a daisy chain topology. LEARN MORE >
