In its statement, Marvell said the patented technologies are not used in its chips, and the jury agreed.

Regarding the jury's decision, Marvell Chairman, President, and CEO Sehat Sutardja was quoted as saying, "I'm pleased to have this litigation behind us so that we can continue to focus our energies on what we do best -- designing and delivering the world's most innovative semiconductor products."
