 INTERPHASE ADDS EISA AND SBUS CONTROLLERS TO
 INDUSTRY LEADING FDDI PRODUCT LINE
 DALLAS, May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Interphase Corporation (NASDAQ: INPH), the worldwide leader in high performance open systems FDDI, today announced new EISA and SBus controllers that further expand its broad family of FDDI solutions.
 The E/FDDI 4811 SeaHawk for EISA, and the 4611 SBus FDDI Connection, with the Interphase fiberHUB(TM) 1600 concentrator announced last month, deliver high performance FDDI to the desktop. These products are part of a new series of Interphase FDDI solutions. The company's existing line of FDDI VMEbus and Multibus controllers are the most widely used in the industry.
 The SeaHawk and the FDDI Connection are ANSI X3T9 compliant single attach controllers, available with either a fiber optic or a twisted pair connection. The SeaHawk features SMT 6.2 (Station Management software) on board, and drivers for NetWare, UNIX and OS/2. The SunOS driver for the 4611 SBus FDDI Connection includes native TCP/IP support and integrated SMT 6.2.
 "EISA and SBus make a good match for FDDI at the desktop, because the bus performance can utilize the power of 100 Mb/s networking," said Tom Kent, Interphase marketing vice president. "The SeaHawk, the 4611, and the fiberHUB(TM) concentrator make FDDI to the desktop affordable and flexible without sacrificing performance."
 The new Interphase FDDI controllers meet the needs of OEMs, systems integrators, and end users of EISA and SBus systems. For computer manufacturers, the products deliver proven FDDI networking to enhance EISA and SBus system capabilities. In addition, systems integrators and end users can utilize the SeaHawk and the 4611 with the fiberHUB concentrator in a variety of FDDI applications. For example, a workgroup of up to 16 SBus, EISA or VME systems -- with any combination of fiber or twisted pair cabling -- can be connected to an FDDI ring through the fiberHUB. Larger departments, or interdepartmental networks, can use multiple concentrators to connect large numbers of systems.
 "Interphase now offers flexible high speed networking solutions for even more users. And, customers receive the added benefit of our experience in FDDI," said Kent.
 The SeaHawk and the 4611 will be available in Q4.
 The SeaHawk with a fiber optic connection is $2,995; with a twisted pair connector pricing is $2,495. The 4611 SBus FDDI Connection is priced at $2,395 for fiber, and $1,895 for twisted pair. Pricing includes easy-to-use documentation and installation guides.
 Interphase Corporation, based in Dallas, is a leading supplier of high performance networking solutions and peripheral controllers for open systems. The company sells to computer OEMs, systems integrators, Value Added Resellers and end users through a worldwide sales and service network.
