Murphy said it's been four years since his company began their transformation from a commodity chipmaker into a leading data infrastructure player. Marvell "solves for value," Murphy explained, and that means divesting in some areas while expanding in others. This strategy has made them major providers in automotive, broadband, embedded systems, switching and storage.
Turning to 5G wireless, Murphy said that Marvell has made several key acquisitions that differentiate them in the market and has allowed them to be a part of the 5G revolution in every geography.
