FREMONT, Calif., June 12, 2001 - Centillium Communications, Inc.

The NCA is an industry alliance of product and service vendors committed to promoting the deployment of convergence technologies.

"Centillium is proud to be a member of the NCA and we believe our participation will enhance our ability as a broadband solutions provider to identify and drive technology."

The NCA promotes the features and benefits of deploying convergence technologies through five major service offerings to member companies, including a national seminar tour, Web site listings, a database of NCA research, advertising opportunities and market segment committees. The association also holds an annual meeting, followed by the Convergence Conference & Expo, to further promote convergence issues and technology.
