 BROOKTREE ACQUIRES PRODUCT LINE FROM ROCKWELL
 SAN DIEGO, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Brooktree Corp. (NASDAQ: BTRE)


today announced it has acquired Rockwell International Corp.'s Digital Communications Device product line for $5 million with an additional $1 million to be paid over a three-year period. Brooktree will integrate the products into its newly-formed Communications Strategic Business Unit as part of a plan to create a broad line of products meeting key high-end communication standards.
 Brooktree has purchased the complete product line which includes several T1/E1 Framer chips, a Line Interface Unit, an ISDN Link Layer Controller and an 8 bit/16 bit Multiprotocol Communications Controller.
 "The Rockwell product line gives Brooktree a broad digital communication device portfolio that complements our internal product development efforts for communication devices," said Jim Bixby, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "These additional products will enable us to offer the merchant T1/E1 and High Bit-Rate Digital Subscriber Line (HDSL) market a full range of communication devices."
 Brooktree will service customers and distribute products immediately from its headquarters in San Diego. Products will be manufactured by Rockwell for three years, allowing Brooktree to gradually incorporate the new product line into its existing operations.
 Brooktree designs, manufactures and markets mixed-signal integrated circuits for high-performance communications, computer graphics systems and emerging desktop-video, imaging and automatic test equipment applications. Since 1986, the San Diego-based company has been a pioneer in the computer graphics marketplace, and today offers a variety of high-speed analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), digital-to-analog converters (DACs) and RAMDACs.
