LAS VEGAS and SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Marvell
(NASDAQ: MRVL) today announced that Cambridge Industries Group (CIG) has
designed systems based on the Marvell chipset for home networking
applications. Marvell is at the forefront of deploying products
for fast and powerful connectivity in the delivery of multimedia content to
Smart TVs and devices in the Smart Home. CIG joins a growing list of OEM
partners in Marvell's second wave of design wins, accelerating the global
adoption of the extensible ITU-T standard designed to provide connectivity at
data rates up to 1 Gbit/s over standard forms of home wiring, including
electrical wires, coaxial cables, twisted pair and optical fiber.


CIG's systems, the HN-300-A1CN and the HN-100-A1E, are based on Marvell's
GE-DW360F reference design, which includes the Marvell® 88LX3142 digital
baseband processor, the Marvell 88LX2718 analog front end, and the
Marvell 88E1510 Gigabit PHY with a complete TCP/IP protocol stack. In
addition to the powerline-Ethernet bridge function, the CIG HN-300-A1CN
provides a 12V DC power supply to power optical network terminal (ONT)
gateways and set-top boxes (STBs) directly. The CIG HN-100-A1E is a powerline
adapter design with a built-in pass-through power socket and easy
plug-and-play installation. The Marvell chipset is ideal for distributing
bandwidth-intensive and real-time applications like HD IPTV, VoIP, real-time
gaming, and multi-room DVR.

"CIG is harmonizing networking transceiver technology across all types of home
wiring to simplify home networking. With Marvell's silicon at the core of
our powerline devices, CIG is anticipating high-quality performance levels for
transmitting high-speed data and real-time applications anywhere in the
connected home," said Rose Hu, vice president, marketing, CIG. "We are very
pleased to be collaborating with a market leader like Marvell on delivering
innovative products that power the Smart Home."

Since its debut in September 2011, Marvell's silicon continues to garner
industry support. Marvell's 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
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 systems based on the Marvell

"Marvell is excited to be working with industry leaders like CIG to bring
advanced home networking applications based on to the Smart Home," said
Winston Chen, vice president of the Smart Home Business Unit at Marvell
Semiconductor, Inc. "Marvell's silicon unifies the home wireline network
for distributing more content to more screens in more rooms throughout the
home. The chipset is also a great ambassador for Marvell's complete portfolio
of technologies to support total connectivity solutions for the always-on

Marvell products will be showcased at the Marvell booth (South
Hall 3 – Booth 31423) and at the HomeGrid Forum booth (South Hall 1, Booth
21906) during CES at the Las Vegas Convention Center, January 8-11, 2013.
