IoT (Internet of Things) is one of the most exciting things in technology at the moment and Marvell is positioning itself to provide the necessary solutions for OEMs to capitalise on this growing market. Marvell said they have a number of chips and reference designs with the necessary software that takes manufactures from quick prototyping to production in a short time.
China’s Broadlink Electronic has release range of smart home appliances built on Marvell’s Internet of Things (IoT) platform. The range is base on Broadlink’s “Smart Life and Smart Lifestyle” vision featuring the RM2 Universial Home Controller, A1 Air Quality Monitor and the SP2 Smart-Socket. Together this range of DIY home automation products allows homeowners to control their television, garage doors, light switches and any connected home appliances.
The new remote control reference design platform is base on the ZigBee RF4CE standard. The solution offers a rich remote control experience that includes voice search and gesture recognition, internet-based multimedia search and discovery capabilities, support for the latest in cloud gaming and more.
The remote platform joins other Marvell smart home, set-top box and smart TV solutions such as their award-winning ARMADA 1500 series SoC (System-on-Chip).
At this year’s PT/Expo Comm in China, Marvell Showcased and demonstrated an array of Smart home solutions including Android TV, LED lighting, home cloud solutions and G.hn reference designs. The electronic company said it wants to work with local operators to integrate today’s three key platforms: Cloud, Smart TV and Smart mobile.
Marvell said they now offers a comprehensive suite of high performance video delivery solutions and a range of mobile and smart home devices to support the always-connected lifestyle.
Marvell is inviting attendees to this year’s CES to visit its stand to see the next generation of mobile digital lifestyle solutions. They are promising to demonstrate the latest products developed using their range of chip technologies. These solutions, said Marvell will enable consumers to access live digital content -- video, photos, music, voice, data and news -- seamlessly, in any format from wherever they are, whenever they want.
Jungo and Marvell have combined the Jungo’s OpenRG(TM) residential gateway software and Marvell's AVANTA(TM) Application Gateway-on-a-Chip (GoC) in one reference design for the always-on connected home. The news was made at this year’s Broadband World Forum in La Defense Paris France.
Service providers and network operators will have easier access to always-on home services and value-added applications using devices with the new residential gateway reference platform.
The ARMADA 1000 High Definition media processor System-on-a-Chip (SoC) - part of the ARMADA Processors from Marvell now has support for RVU protocol. The new solution will be deployed in various low powered consumer electronic (CE) devices such as handsets, tablets and set-top boxes (STB). This is expected to benefit operators by allowing them to provide a consistent viewing experience and features to connected CE devices, while consumers benefit from a standard user experience throughout the home without the need for separate proprietary devices.
Marvell, a worldwide leader in integrated silicon solutions, today announced it has acquired the intellectual property and assets of Diseno de Sistemas en Silicio S.A. ("DS2"), a supplier of high speed semiconductor solutions for powerline communications. Powerline technology converts any existing electrical power wiring into an intelligent, high-speed networking medium, enabling consumers to quickly and affordably create a "connected home" that can stream virtually any personal or subscription-based digital content to and from any room at high speeds. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
4Home and Marvell have developed a new energy management solution on the Plug Computer to compete in the home energy management market. The solution is a combination of 4Home’s connected home services software and Marvell’s integrated silicon solution. It is based on the SheevaPlug, powered by Marvell’s Sheeva CPU Technology and 4Home’s ControlPoint software.
Marvell announced the game-changing ARMADA family of processors designed specifically for next generation ARM instruction set smartphones, smartbooks, consumer and embedded devices, and displays. In addition to true mobility from lightweight designs and long battery life - today's connected consumers and enterprise users demand high quality, instantaneous personal entertainment, and content from a multitude of social-networking and other cloud-based services.
