IP Protection & Innovation
Driving positive change through technological innovation
Our intellectual property is fundamental to our business success. As such, we have strong oversight of its protection. We are increasingly broadening our view of our innovations to consider the ESG implications and to drive positive global impact through our technologies.
Marvell has built an extensive patent portfolio of over 10,000 patents to protect key innovations that are accessible and incorporated into our products. These key innovations include technologies that differentiate Marvell products as well as standards-essential technologies. In addition to patent protection, Marvell further incorporates other forms of IP protections including Trade Secrets, Trademarks, and Copyrights.
Marvell has appropriate safeguards in place to protect Marvell’s confidential information, including any third party data, at all times. Information Security/IT teams monitor movement of data to prevent leaks—e.g., in communications with third parties and when employees terminate employment.
We have improved the tracking of environmental implications of our patents and other innovations. We are developing incentives and other engagement opportunities to encourage innovation with ESG in mind. We are also exploring ways to take into account ESG criteria when designing new products.
We believe that we can achieve greater impact by partnering with other groups within and outside our industry. We engage in various trade associations and other industry bodies. Over the next several years we will collaborate further with others to help enable the applications of technological innovations to help address societal and environmental challenges.
