Phoenix, Arizona, April 12, 2000 - ON Semiconductor, today announced that it has launched its Chinese language web site for information on the semiconductor industry in China. This is one of the first locally registered and hosted web sites in China created by a semiconductor supplier. URL www.onsemi.com.cn underscores the company's strategy to serve the China market - not only developing e-Business but also nurturing technical talent to develop new solutions for wireless and other applications.
The China-based web site provides engineers, buyers and engineering academics with information about the electronics industry. The site features a Chinese language learning center, an Internet service center, market news, product literature, corporate information, technical support, site feedback and online ordering of product samples, literature on customer specified CD-ROMs. In the future it will provide an even more comprehensive range of information and services including e-Business transactions.
"It is only the beginning of the development for the Chinese web site. This site will be continuously enhanced to meet the needs of local engineers. With ON Semiconductor's broad product range, including a portfolio of over 16,000 products, this web site will carry the largest online semiconductor components portfolio in the Chinese language," said Henry Leung, vice president and general manager for the Asia Pacific Region at ON Semiconductor.
Because the ON Semiconductor '.cn' web site is actually hosted in China, China's Internet users and students will benefit from the faster speed at which they can access up-to-date product and technology information in their own language without incurring the additional surcharges resulting from entering a foreign-based site.
"With the China web site ON Semiconductor is delivering on its commitment to provide useful tools to simplify the design-in and procurement of semiconductors for wireless and other applications," noted Colum O'Neill, Program Manager, e-Commerce. "The China web site is a unique approach to provide content that is both easy to access since it is hosted in China and easy to use since it is in the Chinese language.
The first release of www.onsemi.com.cn is already on-line and other services will be fully operational soon. The China web site is accessible directly from the enhanced US web site that includes newly added functionality for product change notifications and literature and sample ordering.
