SPECTRUM AND TEXAS INSTRUMENTS LAUNCH NEW MULTIMEDIA DEVELOPMENT EFFORT

 BURNABY, British Columbia, June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Spectrum Signal Processing Inc. (NASDAQ: SSPIF; Vancouver: SSY), the North American market leader in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) development systems, today announced it commenced a development program with Texas Instruments which will lead to new chips and boards targeted at the personal computer sound market.
 Under the program, Spectrum and Texas Instruments engineers will work together to design and develop chips, boards and software which will enhance the capabilities of MWAVE-based products. The engineering work will be completed at Texas Instruments' Houston facility and Spectrum's Burnaby facility. The DSP-based products under development will target the estimated annual 5.4 million unit PC sound board market.
 Spectrum and Texas Instruments will each own the resulting technology. Spectrum plans to incorporate the technology in new peripheral card products for the PC and to enhance the performance of existing MWAVE(TM) designs. The two companies also will co-market resulting multimedia products to OEMs.
 "This is an important endorsement of Spectrum's full breadth DSP capability by Texas Instruments, the industry leader in DSP," said Barry Jinks, Spectrum's president and chief executive officer.
 Spectrum Signal Processing is a leading developer of system and processor boards, software tools, hardware systems and other digital signal processing products for the PC, VME and SBus environments. These systems support Digital Signal Processors from all the major DSP vendors in the industry today. Spectrum's unique modular DSP hardware allows users to interface off-the-shelf peripheral I/O boards with the processor of their choice via the DSP LINK(TM) system expansion interface.
