SANTA CLARA, Calif. / TAIPEI, Taiwan (May 31, 2016) – Marvell (NASDAQ:MRVL), a world leader in storage, cloud infrastructure, Internet of Things (IoT), connectivity and multimedia semiconductor solutions, today launched a highly optimized suite of IoT application processors for home automation, industrial, and wearable applications. Purpose-built as part of Marvell’s IoT Application Processor (IAP) family of products, the IAP220 System-on-Chip (SoC) enables the low-power and high-performance computing necessary for many IoT products, and features an ARM® Cortex®-A7 dual core processor.
“Marvell’s new IoT Application Processor suite, including the IAP220 SoC purpose-built for embedded devices which complements our current shipping IAP140 SoC, expands the company’s industry-leading connectivity portfolio and anticipates the needs of customers bringing the next wave of IoT products to market,” said Philip Poulidis, Vice President and General Manager, Automotive, Wireless and Internet of Things Business Units at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. “Our IAP220 SoC provides full multimedia support, an integrated sensor hub, and a comprehensive ‘silicon and software’ solution for developing super-low-power Internet-connected devices with bandwidth-hungry applications.”
“As manufacturers develop more feature-rich and increasingly compact connected devices and wearables, demand is rising for power-efficient application processors,” said Linley Gwennap, principal analyst of The Linley Group. “Marvell’s highly integrated IAP processors and software stack provide OEMs with a comprehensive solution for IoT systems, allowing them to quickly develop innovative products while minimizing the number of components.”
