market.

Marvell is a world leader in the development of storage, communications, and
consumer silicon solutions.

The new system-on-chip (SoC) solutions are powered by Marvell EZ-Connect
Software and supported by a vast ecosystem of partners. Marvell's EZ-Connect
Software provides production-ready software for industry standard
communication protocols. Complete with easy-to-use software development kits
(SDKs) and application programming interfaces (APIs), the EZ-Connect Software
enables developers to leverage the full potential of a built-in
microcontroller on the SoC solutions. With Marvell's complete IoT platform
solution, developers are able to save months of software development efforts
and can focus their energy and resources on bringing innovative services and
applications to consumers and end users through their IoT devices.

"Marvell is proudly powering the 'Smart Life and Smart Lifestyle' through
flexible, energy-efficient platforms that enable our customers and partners to
deliver new and innovative connected products in the rapidly growing Internet
of Things market," said Philip Poulidis, Vice President and General Manager,
Mobile and Internet of Things Business Units at Marvell. "Marvell's latest
system-on-chip solutions offer unparalleled advantages for home automation,
LED lighting control, remote control, healthcare monitoring and other
