New Name Reflects Centillium's Focus on Expanding Communication Bandwidth

FREMONT, Calif., September 20, 1999 - Centillium Technology Corporation has changed its name to Centillium Communications, Inc. The new company name echoes Centillium's core strategy of developing complete system solutions that expand communication bandwidth. Centillium's products are full communication system solutions that include Digital signal Processors (DSP), analog mixed signal, digital IC technologies, firmware, and system integration capabilities.

"Centillium is widely known in the telecom and datacom industries for providing the communication solutions that help make up the 'plumbing' of the Internet," said A. Travis White, President and CEO of Centillium. "Major networking equipment manufacturers choose our highly integrated communications ICs because we incorporate all the necessary software and system capabilities into one solution. Our new corporate name properly reflects the fact that we are a total solutions company to the communication industry."

Centillium also announced the opening of a new corporate headquarters located at 47211 Lakeview Boulevard in Fremont, California. The new facility is more than twice as large as Centillium's existing headquarters and provides an option for further expansion in 2002. In addition to providing more space for engineering, sales and marketing, finance, and administrative groups, the new facility will enable Centillium to significantly expand its research, development, and testing labs.

"We are pleased to be able to stay in the city of Fremont, where the company was founded," said White. "We expected our current facility to last longer than it did, but customer acceptance of our products has been stronger than we anticipated, therefore we require larger facilities sooner than expected.
