New design win for Silicom

A major traffic management/load balancing appliance manufacturer will make Silicom's reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS)-compliant Gigabit Ethernet adapters part of its standard equipment.


Globes correspondent 6 Feb 06 15:44

Silicom Ltd. (Nasdaq: SILCF) today announced that a major US based developer and manufacturer of traffic management and load balancing appliances has selected its reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS)-compliant Gigabit Ethernet adapters and has already placed production orders for such adapters. Silicom's advanced adapters will be used as standard equipment in the customer's intelligent appliances. No value was disclosed and the customer was not named.
Silicom president and CEO Shaike Orbach said, "We are proud that our products are now being used in another very important market segment - the market of load balancing and traffic management appliances - and that they meet the exacting standards of a recognized leader of this fast-growing industry. This new design win is a milestone that marks our increased penetration to this new market segment."

The RoHS Directive of the European Union (EU) (commonly called the "Lead Free Law") sets maximum concentration limits on hazardous materials used in electrical and electronic equipment. Implementation of the RoHS Directive is required in all EU countries by July 1, 2006, and many states within the U.S. have adopted or are considering adoption of similar laws.

Silicom stated that it is among the first companies world wide offering RoHS-compliant multi port and bypass server adapters.
