Silicon Motion Sets Record for Flash Controller Shipments in September

Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C., October 4, 2006 -- Silicon Motion Technology Corporation (Nasdaq: SIMO; "the Company"), a leading fabless semiconductor company that designs, develops, and markets universally compatible, high-performance, low-power semiconductor solutions for the multimedia consumer electronics market, today announced that it has set a record for mobile storage product shipments in the month of September.

Wallace Kou, President and CEO of the Company, commented, "In September, we shipped over 22 million controllers that are used in compact flash (CF) cards, multimedia cards (MMC), secure digital (SD) cards, and USB 2.0 flash disks (UFD), compared to approximately 12 million units in September of last year. As we have indicated previously, we are seeing strong demand for small form factor flash memory cards that are used in mobile phones. This demand has resulted in record shipments of our SM263 and SM264 SD/MMC controllers. The record shipments also demonstrated the wide market acceptance of our new controllers that we began shipping in April of this year, including our SM222 CF controllers, SM321E and SM324 UFD controllers, and high-performance SM266 SD controllers. We plan to roll out other flash controllers over the next several quarters to explore additional opportunities. We believe that with our wide range of product offerings, universal compatibility, high performance, competitive pricing, and high-quality customer support infrastructure we should be able to maintain our leadership position in this market."
