Marvell, a global player in providing complete silicon solutions, has added the ARMADA 1500 Ultra (88DE3218) system-on-chip (SoC) to its ARMADA 1500 family.

The ARMADA 1500 Ultra’s Quad Core 14K DMIPS ARM A53 CPU, 8-core GPU, carrier-grade security and state-of-the-art power management techniques are designed to enable pay-TV operators and STB manufacturers to cost-effectively deliver small form factor devices with feature-rich 4K entertainment and gaming services to their subscribers. With its 64-bit ARM CPU, Marvell claims to be the first silicon provider to bring the 64-bit ARM architecture both to the mobile and pay-TV segments, thereby enabling the unification of the application developer ecosystem.

“I am very proud of our close collaboration with global leading service operators to bring Ultra HD, pay-TV and over-the-top services to their subscribers,” said Weili Dai, President and Co-Founder of Marvell. “As consumers increasingly demand cutting-edge home entertainment experiences that include access to high-quality, 4K digital content, it is critical that operators offer compelling entertainment services from multiple sources with uncompromised image quality at an affordable cost. At Marvell, it is our passion and commitment to deliver breakthrough technologies that enable our customers and partners to better the lives of all consumers.”
