Winbond's Speech Recognition ISD SIMON Chip Solution Wins L'ECTRON D'OR 2000,Product of The Year Award

Company's ISD SR-3000 Garners Electronique Magazine's Prestigious Award In Audio, Video, Multimedia Product Category 

San Jose, CA, July 24, 2000 -Winbond Electronics Corporation, a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions, today announced that its award-winning speech recognition chip solution, the ISD SR3000, has won another technology award. Electronique magazine's L'ECTRON D'OR 2000 award has been awarded to the Company's Simon speech recognition chip product in the publication's audio, video, multimedia product category. The accolade marks the second honor the Simon series has been awarded and the fourth year that Electronique magazine, a premiere technology magazine in France, has hosted these awards. Last year the product won the, "Peak Performance" Best of Show Award in the embedded speech applications category at the SpeechTEK '99 Conference and Exposition. 

Introduced in the fourth quarter of 1999, and marketed under the Company's ISD brand name, the product is the first in a new family of microchips designated the Simon series, the ISD SR3000 solution ushers in a new era of speech recognition by dramatically changing the way people interface with electronic devices. With the Simon processor, OEMs can now design consumer products - everything from cell phones and voice message machines to handheld devices - featuring speech recognition instead of complex, keyboarded commands. This new technology offers speaker-independent speech recognition with continuous speech and digit input in a cost-effective, embedded solution that significantly reduces customers' cost and time to market. 

The Simon series currently supports English and German languages with additional languages under development.
