SANTA CLARA, Calif. and DETROIT, Sept. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Marvell (NASDAQ: MRVL) today announced that its automotive Ethernet switch software has achieved Automotive SPICE® Level 2 certification.  This accreditation underscores Marvell's commitment to providing world-class automotive software capabilities and processes.  Specifically, ASPICE Level 2 provides car manufacturers the confidence to employ Marvell's software in crucial applications spanning Advance Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), L3/L4 Autonomous Drive (AD) as well as secure central gateways.

Automotive SPICE, Software Process Improvement and Capability dEtermination, has been developed by a combination of special interest groups within the Automotive Special Interest Group (SIG), a group of Automotive OEM, the Procurement Forum and the SPICE User Group to address the software development needs of the automotive industry.  To achieve this certification, Marvell went through a rigorous process and improved its software development capabilities over the past three years.  The ASPICE Level 2 certification was evaluated and completed by Vector Consulting Services, an independent third-party organization based in Germany.
