Silicom Achieves Major SETAC Design Win from New Customer: Leading Networking Solutions Provider Selects SETAC for Application Delivery Product Line

Revenues From This Win Expected to Ramp to ~$1M Per Year

KFAR SAVA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Silicom Ltd. (Nasdaq: SILC) (TASE:SILC) today announced that a new client - a major provider of appliance solutions for the Network Security, Application Delivery and Storage markets - has selected Silicom's SETAC SErver To Appliance Converter kits and modules to use in two appliances within one of its product lines. Based on the customer's initial purchase orders and guidance, Silicom expects sales related to this Design Win to ramp to approximately $1 million per year. In addition, the customer is considering the use of SETAC in other appliances and product lines, a possibility that would generate several million dollars per year in additional revenues for Silicom.

The customer's selection of SETAC over other solutions confirms the market needs that Silicom initially targeted in creating the product, especially 1) the desire to use higher quality standard motherboards and servers in appliances without sacrificing front-end connectivity and modularity; and 2) the desire to have practically unlimited flexibility in selecting the appliance's motherboard and chassis. In this case, the customer will be integrating a wide range of SETAC products, including SETAC kits, 1Gbps modules and 10Gbps modules in copper and fiber, in both 1U and 2U appliances.

"We are very excited to add another major networking leader to our customer base and a significant new Design Win to our revenue stream," commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom's President and CEO. "This win demonstrates the contribution that every element of our business model has made in driving our growth and success: our focus on the continual addition of major new customers, each of which offers us significant potential for long-term business expansion; the right read of the needs of our customers and markets, enabling us to create truly unique and needed products; and, of course, our focus on technological excellence and customer service, which serve as the platform for everything we do. This new customer - together with so many of our previous customers - represents a broad spectrum of possibilities for future sales and a channel for even deeper understanding of market needs. As such, this Design Win makes us feel even more confident in our ability to continue growing in the future, for both the short term and the long term."
