Marvell Technology plans to roll out its new generation of chips based on the world’s most advanced 5-nm node by the end of next year, trying to get ahead of rivals in the market for chips used in cloud data centers, corporate networks, 5G telecom systems, and other types of data infrastructure.

The Santa Clara, California-based company said it has partnered with TSMC to develop a new portfolio of chips based on its 5-nm process for a wide range of areas, from data centers to 5G network infrastructure. Marvell said it plans to upgrade its products from TSMC’s 7-nm process node, the current state-of-the-art in the global chip business, to the 5-nm node to improve on the storage, bandwidth, speed, and machine-learning capabilities of its chips in a low-power envelope.
