Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ:SILC)(TASE:SILC) today announced that it has been issued patent No. 8,199,523, entitled “Server-Based Network Appliance”, from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The patent confirms the uniqueness of Silicom’s SETAC Server-to-Appliance-Converter concept and technology, thereby strengthening the Company’s competitive positioning in the fast-growing network appliance industry.
SETAC is Silicom’s innovative response to industry demand for a new, more reliable and flexible approach to building network appliances. Before the availability of the SETAC, appliance manufacturers, when designing new appliances, had to make a trade-off between the use of standard high-quality server-grade motherboards and the provision of customized functions, such as field re-configurability, front-connectivity and others. With SETAC, manufacturers are able to select from a much wider spectrum of design, features and performance possibilities, delivering a much higher-quality appliance with the robust reliability of the standard-brand servers and motherboards as well as with the desired custom features.
Since launching the SETAC, Silicom has achieved a number of major SETAC Design Wins from some of the industries largest players. This has resulted in a significant ramp-up of SETAC sales; in fact, in 2011, SETAC’s second year of commercial availability, SETAC sales represented approximately 10% of Silicom’s revenues.
Commenting on the news, Mr. Shaike Orbach, President and CEO of Silicom, said, “We are delighted that the U.S. Patent Office has recognized the out-of-the-box innovation of our SETAC concept. This is just one more confirmation of the stand-out nature of our technological expertise and achievements, the area that has always represented the underlying strength of our company. SETAC is already a key component of our strategy and we believe that the granting of this patent will further boost its momentum.”
