Marvell Introduces Plug Computing to Europe
SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Marvell (NASDAQ: MRVL) , a leader in storage, communications, and consumer silicon solutions, today announced that developers in Europe can now purchase SheevaPlug(TM) development kits, outfitted for regional electrical specifications, through www.plugcomputer.org from Ionics EMS, Inc. and Globalscale Technologies. In addition to broadening the outreach to application developers, Marvell is growing the plug computing ecosystem by working with retail vendors such as BUFFALO INC., D-Link, LaCie and Seagate, who plan to launch retail versions of the plug computer for the consumer market.
"The Plug Computer is one of the more amazing technologies that have come out this decade and it has the potential to change the world," said Rob Enderle, Principal Analyst for the Enderle Group. "The open plug platform gives European developers the opportunity to create applications, services, and solutions that are only limited by their imaginations."
Marvell introduced the Plug Computing initiative to make high-performance, always on, always connected, and environmentally friendly computing readily available for developers and end-users. A Plug Computer is small enough to plug directly into a wall socket and is designed to draw so little power that it can be left on all of the time. Unlike other embedded devices in the home, it contains a gigahertz class processor that is designed to offer PC class performance.
"The wide range of applications created from the open-developer SheevaPlug platform serves both retail product partners and service providers," said Dr. Simon Milner, Vice President and General Manager of the Enterprise Business Unit, Consumer and Communications Business Group at Marvell Semiconductor. "We are thrilled to introduce SheevaPlug to the European developer community and look forward to seeing many new applications and new consumer product ideas developed and brought to market. Moreover, Marvell is delighted to collaborate with retail partners such as BUFFALO INC., D-Link, LaCie and Seagate on delivering new levels of user experience to consumers."
The plug computing ecosystem is rapidly expanding to include a full value chain of product partners, application developers and educational institutions. A full list of ecosystem partners is available at www.marvell.com.
