With the recent Cisco and HP switch demos at the Interop events, looks like the technology is finally getting off the ground. $350 M in 2014 should justify Marvells entry into the fray.

This looks to be fire sale of SolarFlare's 10GBase-T PHY. As regards to 10GbE SFP+, it seems like SolfarFlare is already late to the game. Others like Broadcom, Cortina, AMCC, etc., are already well entrenched. The 10GBase-T PHY opportunities will remain largely at the switches, servers, repeaters and such but not at the desktop / laptop for a foreseeable future. Power consumption improvements & cost reductions will eventually may make it feasible for client nodes but that is still about 3 to 5 years away IMHO. The power consumption of SFP+ PHY's are about 1/3rd of base-T PHYs at 10G but their form factor will preclude applications in desktops and laptops. So CNA's based on SFP will be confined to servers for a while and that is the market already well-captured by likes of Broadcom, Cortina, AMCC! MP Divakar

10G Base T market will grow much more in the future as the technology will always costs lesser than fiber optic based networks. Marvel has been a leader in Ethernet chips since log time and this acquisition will certainly help them a lot.

The industry is going through consolidation and this seems to indicate future pricing tightening. This seems good for Marvell as this is a good technology to own.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
