China Selects ON Semiconductor as a Partner of Certification on Energy Conservation


Only chipmaker recognized by government agency for supporting China's drive to reduce standby power in office products

PHOENIX, Ariz. – Nov. 13, 2003 – ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN) today announced that it has become the first and only chipmaker to receive recognition two consecutive years running from the China Certification Center for Energy Conservation Products (CECP), China's highest authority for certifying energy conservation products.

CECP presented ON Semiconductor with a Partner of China Certification on Energy Conservation award yesterday in Beijing to recognize the company’s support for China's push for standby power reduction in office automation products including printers and fax machines. The award comes just 14 months after CECP recognized ON Semiconductor's efforts to reduce "leaky electricity" as a major source of wasted energy from color-television sets that continue to use power in standby mode.

"The fact that we are recognized for a second year in a row reflects our contributions to optimize standby power performance and energy efficiency in China and worldwide," said Frank Zhang, ON Semiconductor president of China operations.

ON Semiconductor offers a diverse portfolio of extremely low standby power solutions designed to comply with power consumption specifications including Energy Star, Blue Angel and Power Factor Correction (PFC) requirements such as IEC 1000-3-2. Many of the world's leading office equipment manufacturers including Hewlett Packard, Canon, Lexmark and Epson use ON Semiconductor's power-saving chips to develop technologically innovative, energy-efficient products that help to conserve power.

ON Semiconductor's power-conserving technology goes back to the 1980s, when the company was known as Motorola Semiconductor Components Group and before power consumption was a major issue.

Today, the company’s broad range of analog, logic, discretes and MOSFETs for off-line switched-mode power supplies, as well as PFC applications, help engineers to design a wide variety of energy-efficient products for telecommunications, computing, consumer electronics, industrial applications or power adapters.

ON Semiconductor’s NCP120x and NCP101x series of power-management devices provide designers with effective solutions to meet, and many times exceed, international standby power regulations.

Last month, in its bid to continue to respond to the industry need for comprehensive power-management solutions in the smallest space at lowest cost, ON Semiconductor introduced the NCP1651 – an industry’s first single stage PFC controller that facilitates the simplest possible implementation of isolated power converters and reduces both part count and overall design costs for power conversion applications such as battery chargers and distributed power systems up to 200 watts (W).

ON Semiconductor is a pioneer technology manufacturer in western China through Leshan-Phoenix Semiconductor Company Limited, its joint venture company that it formed in 1995 in Sichuan province. ON Semiconductor also has representative offices in Beijing (serving northern China), Shanghai (central and eastern China), Chengdu (western China) and Shenzhen (southern China); as well as design centres in Hong Kong and Shanghai. To better serve the company’s customer requirements to be billed in local currency in China, ON Semiconductor has established a wholly owned trading enterprise in Shanghai. The company’s China headquarters is in Shanghai.
