California-based Marvell Technology Group Ltd. said Wednesday it is looking to add 70 employees to its Israel work force, as part of its efforts to expand its research and development program. The broadband communications company said it is currently accepting applications from software, layout and VLSI /ASIC engineers, who will be hired at one of its two units in Israel. Marvell made the headlines in Israel with its landmark $2.7 billion acquisition of Galileo Technology in October 2000 to create Marvell Semiconductors Israel. The Yokne'am-based unit will take on approximately 30 new workers to add to its current employee base of 400. Tel Aviv-based Radlan Communications, which Marvell bought in February 2004, will add 40 workers to its 150-member team. Eliaz Lavi, CEO of Marvell Semiconductor Israel, said the hiring decision resulted from a desire to expand R&D activities and develop new products that would serve as the next generation of the data communications market. "These products will in the future be required components of the electronics industry," Lavi said. Marvell develops technologies that power a range of consumer electronics. It has five design centers across the US and additional facilities in Israel, Germany, Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan.
