Marvell has pitched the industries trends correctly, this way are going to be benefited with both the giant market Eco-systems of Chinese and American.

If Marvell focuses on TD-XXX air interface, I will not be surprised that there are more R&D engineers in China. Eyes on China sounds a very good strategy at the moment and likely in the long run. The experience and knowledge acquired from home-grown TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE will likely benefit the company in the long run. Given all these, what's the focus of the development team in the Valley? If the market is going to be primarily in China, what about the marketing team in the States?

Good question. But bear in mind, Marvell is still keeping an eye on both China and non-China markets. There is still a huge role the U.S. marketing dept. should play.

Design in China and target for domestic market is a good strategy. More company may move quicker to China (or at least far east), especially in such poor economy in the West.

It is a good price to pay despite the obvious challenge of IP theft. But as they have said that this is the Chinese century, Marvel may be saving its business by banking on China.

Sounds to me like they may be running a great training camp for designers that will run off with their best ideas. We will see. Questions were well placed, good job Junko!

Actually, I had not realized until I actually went to China -- how much resources Marvell is pouring into China. But again, they seem to know what they are doing...

Looks like a smart move by Marvel, I do wonder if they want to increase their presence in China to be better positioned to pick up the local markets. It will be interesting to see how things progress there and if Marvel intends to keep feet in both US and China long term

@chanj: great question! Given the diverse vertical market segments Marvell has presence in, I would imagine it will keep a core technology team in the valley. Marvell seems to have played its cards right in LED lighting, M2M communications, general analog-mixed signal, power management, and many others. Perhaps this China strategy is a move to maximize the local talent. MP Divakar

Am curious to know who is the current chip leader in China? and what will it take for the Marvel to beat the chinese peers because I am sure its not a easy task.
