Marvell's ARMADA Powers Google's Chromecast

Marvell is the silicon supplier for Google's new Chromecast device which delivers online content directly to the HDMI port of a TV.

The new ARMADA 1500-mini is optimized to support low-power applications such as TV dongles while being extremely energy efficient.

"I am very excited to see the brilliance of the tiny and beautiful Chromecast. I believe this is truly a game-changing solution to drive the new era of the 'Connected Lifestyle' by enabling easy access to online entertainment for an immersive, interactive multi-screen experience across any smartphone, tablet, laptop and big screen. I am very proud of Google's leadership in driving the ecosystem partners to deliver more powerful and very affordable solutions to serve the world of consumers for better lives," said Weili Dai, President and Co-Founder of Marvell.
