"Woxter's designs harness the power of Marvell's G.hn silicon, enabling home
networking of plug-and-play devices at high-speed connections anywhere in the
home ," said Javier Parraga, CEO of Woxter. "At CES this year, we are focused
on bringing home the HD experience through any socket. We follow the trends
that impact our customers and make their lives easier with our new products
that provide the solutions they need for simple, reliable and easy-to-use home
entertainment products. With the integration of Marvell's G.hn chipset into
our products, we anticipate providing optimal performance and delivery of

customers can focus on enjoying content, whether HD video, music or Internet
sharing, when they want, and where they want."

Since its debut in September 2011, Marvell's G.hn silicon continues to garner
industry support. Marvell's G.hn chipset won a Best Electronic Design Award in
December 2011 and a Connected Home Award in April 2012. Demonstrations at CES
and the Asia Plugfest in 2012 generated even more interest in Marvell's G.hn
vision and potential applications of the technology. Most recently, in
December 2012, Marvell became the first silicon vendor worldwide to have its
silicon achieve full compliance certification from the HomeGrid Forum, paving
the way for mass deployments by OEMs of G.hn systems based on the Marvell
chipset.

"We are pleased to be working with Woxter on their home networking products
based on G.hn," said Winston Chen, vice president of the Smart Home Business
Unit at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. "Marvell's G.hn silicon is designed to
enable the distribution of bandwidth-intensive content to more screens in more
rooms throughout the Smart Home. By working with our OEM partners to implement
G.hn designs, we are quickly bringing more G.hn-enabled products to market and
accelerating the vision of total connectivity in an always-on world."
