Improving our products’ energy usage through better design
We are working hard to reduce our product power consumption through better design. We aim to be a leader in the industry in this area by leveraging advanced process technology, which is a key competitive differentiator for us.
Annual: Reduce power consumption of products with each generation for set capabilities
Marvell SSD Controllers are designed to improve performance, efficiency, and security to meet ever-expanding workloads in the cloud by reducing total cost of ownership (TCO), as well as optimizing cloud server CPU utilization.
Marvell Data Center SSD controllers achieved a solid track record of reducing power consumption by over 40% per Gigabyte between generations by using advanced process nodes and innovative SoC architecture.
Marvell processors are used in a wide range of cloud, enterprise, and carrier applications. Due to such a range, Marvell cannot quantify the efficiency per system.
However, Marvell next generation DPU product is designed to reduce power consumption by 50% versus the current generation for the same workload.
Building on Marvell’s legacy of providing low power solutions, Marvell offers a comprehensive portfolio of Ethernet PHY transceivers to address various Ethernet networking standards. Compared at consistent performance with the current generation of the mGig PHY, Marvell’s next generation will achieve a 45% reduction in power consumption, achieving a 50W savings in a typical implementation.
System-on-a-Chip (SOC) designs require embedded memory to store data, maximize transfer of information, and speed processing. Marvell offers custom-designed, value-add memory with architecture optimizations including large array segmentation and single-ended data paths to reduce active power. As a result, the power consumption for Marvell’s 2-port SRAM has decreased by 40% versus the previous generation at fixed bandwidth.
Marvell’s strategy to maximize efficient communication between chips leads to dramatic power optimizations in its interface IP. Over the course of two generations, the power consumption of Marvell’s embedded PCIe Gen 4 offering will be reduced by 45%.
