Since Marvell Technology, the leader of semiconductor solutions for data infrastructure, announced plans to expand its research, engineering, and design activities in Vietnam last year, the company has accelerated employee and business growth in Vietnam.
Marvell has promised to increase its workforce in Vietnam by 50% within three years, a goal set by the company at last year’s U.S. – Vietnam Innovation and Investment Summit, Marvell Chairman and CEO Matt Murphy attended the summit. Nowadays, Marvell has already completed the plan ahead of schedule and achieved over 30% growth in just 8 months.
Marvell has also expanded its physical footprint in Vietnam by establishing a new office in Danang and adding an office in Ho Chi Minh City. The growth of its footprint indicates the company’s commitment to creating a world-class semiconductor design center in the country.
Murphy said, “Since announcing the design center plan last year, we have been excited about the current progress, including the progress we have made in adding top engineering talent to our team and expanding the number of sites. Vietnam is rapidly becoming a semiconductor innovation center, and we are committed to being a part of it.”
The new Marvell Design Center located in Ho Chi Minh City is expected to open next year, and other Marvell engineering facilities in Vietnam focus on high-speed data center optical connectivity, storage, and analog and mixed signal semiconductor technology. These are crucial for accelerating infrastructure construction to meet the growing performance and power demands of artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud data centers.
For over a decade, Marvell has always been a part of Vietnam’s technology ecosystem. “The company is committed to attracting the best and brightest engineering talents to its semiconductor design center in Vietnam and contributing to the development of the semiconductor community in the country,” said Dr. Loi Nguyen, Executive Vice President of Marvell Cloud Optics and Ho Chi Minh City resident.
