SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Marvell (NASDAQ: MRVL)
today announced the expansion of its broad 4G LTE portfolio with the
introduction of its high performance ARMADA® Mobile PXA1088LTE Pro unified
platform to support the issuing of 4G TD-LTE licenses in China and operators
worldwide. Marvell's new high-performance SoC further strengthens the
company's 4G LTE commitment to accelerating mobile broadband adoption with a
scalable design that supports the Ministry of Industry and Information
Technology's (MIIT) initiative to award 4G TD-LTE licenses to China's
operators: China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom. The 4G era in China
has just begun and users in China can enjoy the high-speed mobile broadband
and wireless multimedia services. China Mobile, the world's largest mobile
communication operator, has more than 700 million users. China Unicom and
China Telecom will also provide 4G LTE services to meet the demand for the
fast-growing mobile broadband market. Marvell plays an important role in
enabling both the TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE industry chain with its leading chipsets
in a scalable platform design across multiple telecom providers and helping
original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) deliver high performance, affordable
mobile devices to global consumers. 


"With the recent announcement of TD-LTE licenses in China, this further
accelerates the deployment of 4G LTE.  We believe 2014 will be a big year for
the mass deployment of 4G LTE worldwide.  Marvell's ARMADA Mobile PXA1088LTE
Pro Family delivers best-in-class, world mode 4G LTE performance, enabling top
global mobile carriers and the world's biggest device makers to bring to
market affordable, high-performance, media-centric 4G LTE solutions
worldwide," said Weili Dai, President and Co-Founder of Marvell. "I'm very
proud of Marvell's talented engineering teams around the globe for their
commitment, dedication and innovation in delivering industry leading solutions
that drive the mass market adoption of 4G LTE and enable the Connected
Lifestyle for consumers around the globe." 

Based on the Marvell's certified multimode modem and power-efficient ARM
Cortex A7 quad-core platform, ARMADA Mobile PXA1088LTE Family provides the
OEM/ODM partners a scalable design to address different market segments for
different operators' requirements with three configurations. The high
performance PXA1088LTE Pro features a 1.5GHz CPU and supports up to 1080p
full-HD display for a premium smart phone or tablet. Its predecessor, the
Marvell PXA1088LTE platform, features a 1.2GHz CPU and supports up to 720p HD
display.   Both products are capable of supporting 5 communication standards
including TD-LTE, FDD-LTE, HSPA+, TD-SCDMA, and EDGE/GSM for 4G LTE operators
worldwide. To support China Mobile's $1,000RMB mass market smart phones, a
cost-effective solution based on the required communication standards, TD-LTE,
TD-SCDMA, and EDGE/GSM, is available with a simplified RF design. OEM partners
can easily expand their smart phone or tablet product line based on the
PXA1088LTE family to address different market segments with different
configurations to achieve Time-to-Market (TTM) and to maximize Return on
Investment (ROI).
