Dear Sirs

Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (Company)

We have acted as attorneys in Bermuda for the Company, a Bermuda company, in connection with its filing with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission of a Registration Statement on Form S-8 (Registration Statement) with respect to 8,000,000 common shares of par value USD0.002 per share in the Company (Common Shares) to be issued pursuant to the terms of the Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 2000 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (as amended and restated as of October 31, 2011) (Plan).

For the purposes of this opinion we have examined and relied upon the documents listed, and in some cases defined, in the Schedule to this opinion (Documents) together with such other documentation as we have considered requisite to this opinion.

1.7

that any purchase rights under the Plan relevant to this opinion (each a Purchase Right and collectively, Purchase Rights) will constitute the legal, valid and binding obligations of the parties thereto, other than the Company;

 

1.8

1.12

that in any case where Common Shares are issued by the Company pursuant to the Plan on the terms of a Purchase Right, the Company will receive prior to the allotment of shares a transfer to it of an amount of cash at least equivalent to the aggregate par value of the Common Shares issued pursuant to that Purchase Right;

Based upon and subject to the foregoing and subject to the reservations set out below and to any matters not disclosed to us, we are of the opinion that:

When issued and paid for pursuant to the Resolutions and the Plan, all necessary corporate action required to be taken by the Company in connection with the issue by the Company of the Common Shares pursuant to Bermuda law will have been taken by or on behalf of the Company, and all necessary approvals of governmental authorities in Bermuda have been duly obtained for the issue by the Company of the Common Shares.

3.2

Any reference in this opinion to Common Shares being “non-assessable” shall mean, in relation to fully paid shares of the Company and subject to any contrary provision in any agreement in writing between the Company and the holder of such Common Shares, that no shareholder shall be bound by an alteration to the Memorandum of Association or Bye-laws of the Company after the date on which he or she became a shareholder, if and so far as the alteration requires him or her to take, or subscribe for additional shares, or in any way increases his or her liability to contribute to the share capital of, or otherwise to pay money to, the Company.

 

3.3

Searches of the Register of Companies at the office of the Registrar of Companies are not conclusive and it should be noted that the Register of Companies does not reveal:

 

  3.3.1

details of matters which have been lodged for filing or registration which as a matter of general practice of the Registrar of Companies would have or should have been disclosed on the public file but have not actually been registered or to the extent that they have been registered have not been disclosed or do not appear in the public records at the date and time the search is concluded; or

 

  3.3.2

details of matters which should have been lodged for registration but have not been lodged for registration at the date the search is concluded.

 

3.4

In order to issue this opinion we have carried out the Searches as referred to in the Schedule and have not enquired as to whether there has been any change since the date and time of the Searches.
