– Strategic Design Win Opens Up Significant New Opportunities –

KFAR SAVA, Israel — June 15, 2017, – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC) today announced that it has been awarded a new Design Win from an existing customer, a leading provider of Cloud and Enterprise networking applications and appliances. The current Design Win is for Silicom’s latest generation of high-end and low-end encryption hardware acceleration cards that the client will deploy in its next-generation solutions. Based on the customer’s guidance, Silicom expects related orders to ramp up gradually to approximately $1 million per year.

The process of securing the Design Win included a long period of evaluation and testing, followed by the customer’s decision that the solution architecture proposed by Silicom was the best fit for its future needs. Silicom believes this decision will open the door to new opportunities as the customer considers the use of Silicom products in its new solutions that use this architecture.
“We are proud that our client has confirmed the performance edge that our products deliver, as well as the responsiveness and quality of our support teams,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s CEO.

“We believe that these advantages, coupled with the trust that has built over time between our two companies, will fuel an ongoing expansion in our business with this networking application leader as it continues turning to us for value-added technology and support.”
