Marvell Semiconductor Inc. and IBM have partnered to accelerate the adoption of IBM PowerPC 970 processors in next-generation networking, storage, and server systems. As part of the agreement, Marvell plans to extend its family of Discovery chipsets, with new system controllers that include IBM's PowerPC 970 Elastic Interface technology.

The combination of IBM's PowerPC 970 microprocessor and Marvell's Discovery 970 system controller hopes to provide embedded customers with a comprehensive 64 bit sub-system solution. In conjunction with Marvell's Gigabit PHY, Serial ATA and high-speed switching products, Marvell and IBM now offer a solution base for next generation embedded applications.

IBM plans to make its PowerPC 970 processor available in the first quarter of 2004.
