ROCKWELL SHIPS DATA/FAX MODEMS FEATURING HAYES AUTOSYNC FOR PORTABLE COMMUNICATIONS

 NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., March 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Rockwell International Corp. (NYSE: ROK) today began shipping data/fax modem chipsets with the Hayes AutoSync feature under a patent-licensing agreement with Hayes Microcomputer Products Inc. Rockwell's integrated modem engines, with transmission speeds from 2400 bps to 14.4 Kbps, will now support a low-cost implementation of PC-to- mainframe connectivity.
 Rockwell's products offering the AutoSync feature are included in the low-speed RC96V24AC data/fax modem family and in the low-power family of V.32/V.32bis modem device sets including the RC96ACL/RC144ACL. Rockwell's implementation of Hayes AutoSync enables users to communicate with a host computer from remote locations without the need to switch cables, install separate modem ports or use a mainframe synchronous interface card.
 As a result of the Rockwell/Hayes agreement, modem makers who purchase Rockwell modem chips incorporating Hayes AutoSync provide convenient asynchronous and synchronous remote host communications capabilities to laptop and portable personal computer users without the need for costly additional equipment necessary with alternative methods.
 "Rockwell sees the growth of the portable communications market and recognizes the need for complete modem solutions for these applications," said Armando Geday, business director, Rockwell Modem Systems. "By implementing Hayes AutoSync technology, Rockwell can give modem manufacturers the ability to offer low-cost, low-power, smaller size IBM-mainframe terminal emulation to a broad range of computers for office and remote use."
 The RC96V24 AC and RC96/RC144ACL product families with Hayes AutoSync are available now and are backed by Rockwell's five-year warranty, worldwide technical support and customer service program.
 Rockwell's Telecommunications business segment includes the Digital Communications Division (DCD). Headquartered in Newport Beach, DCD has been a pioneer in modem technology for more than 30 years. Today it is a world leader in fax and data modem components.
 Rockwell International is a multi-industry company applying advanced technology to a wide range of products in its electronics, aerospace, automotive and graphics businesses.
