Marvell aims for 20 percent growth with 3nm move
Following the acquisition of Innovium, chip designer Marvell is predicting growth of up to 20 percent as it moves to 3nm production with TSMC

Marvell expects to see 40 percent of its revenues from the data centre, the highest in the industry, with $1.5bn in cloud, 5G and automotive. The company expects thi sto grow 40 percent a year, twice the growth of the market.

A key element is a new silicon platform based on TSMC’s 3nm process technology with advanced die-to-die interface IP and TSMC’s advanced 2.5D Chip-on-Wafer-on-Substrate (CoWoS) packaging technology. Marvell has developed key standards-based IP for the cloud data centre, 5G carrier, automotive and enterprise markets.

The 3nm multi-chip platform includes two complementary advanced die-to-die interfaces. The first is a flexible extra short reach (XSR) interface for connecting multiple die on a package substrate for applications, like co-packaged optics (CPO) for cloud data centres.

Marvell is also developing an ultra-low power and low-latency parallel die-to-die interface with the highest bandwidth density in the industry. Compatible with emerging Open Compute Project (OCP) standards, the new parallel interface enables high-performance chiplet solutions by connecting multiple silicon devices on an interposer. Both interfaces are also available in 5nm to enable multi-node solutions.

The new platform also incorporates TSMC’s advanced CoWoS packaging technology, empowering continued data infrastructure performance scaling. Marvell’s collaboration with TSMC on CoWoS allows customers to build high-performance solutions for the most demanding cloud data center applications.

“Marvell is proud to be the lead vendor to offer a 3nm platform for cloud-optimized solutions,” said Sandeep Bharathi, Executive Vice President, Central Engineering, System-on-Chip Group at Marvell. “Our new advanced node platform places Marvell on the leading edge of technology readiness with early Si validation of critical IPs to enable fast time-to-market.”

Marvell is currently engaged and collaborating with all the leading data infrastructure innovators.
