[NPL] Microtech's USB to SCSI Converter

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Comdex Fall - Booth #L 7128

Microtech Announces USB to SCSI Converter. Low cost connectivity solution
brings flexibility to iMac owners.

COMDEX - Las Vegas, NV - November 16, 1998 -- Microtech International
announced today that they will manufacture and ship a converter cable that
allows SCSI storage devices to be connected to a standard USB port. The
Microtech Xpress USB is a USB to SCSI Converter which targets the hundreds
of thousands of new iMac owners who may own older SCSI peripherals, such as
hard drives, SyQuest, CD-ROM, or Iomega Zip and Jaz cartridge drives.

With an MSRP of just $79, the USB to SCSI converter is an affordable
solution, filling a void created by the connectivity limitations of the
iMac. "The iMac is exclusively configured with a USB port for peripheral
devices and does not allow SCSI connectivity." said Al Conte, Director of
Digital Imaging products at Microtech. "While some manufacturers are
offering USB compatible products, the majority of Mac storage devices on
the market are SCSI. In addition, many users have SCSI drives from other
systems that they would like to use on their iMacs or even to share in a
small workgroup. The Microtech Xpress USB is a welcome expansion option for
any iMac owner" said Conte.

The converter is designed as a cable with a standard USB connector on one
end, and a male SCSI DB25 connector at the other. The SCSI connector is
attached to the external drive and the hot-swappable USB connector is
plugged into the CPU or hub. The connector supports up to 7 devices in true
plug and play fashion, recognizing devices on the fly without requiring
users to restart the computer. The Xpress USB is fully compliant with the
USB spec version 1.0, and delivers a maximum data throughput rate of
1.2MB/sec.

The first release of the software driver for the connector will support
storage devices including Winchester drives and all removable media
solutions. Microtech also promises an aggressive development schedule for
driver updates and expects to support scanners and other third party
devices in upcoming revisions. All driver upgrades will be free of charge
and available for download from the Microtech Web site.

Specific questions regarding compatibility and product support can be
directed to Microtech Technical Support at 800-666-9689, or via email at
nagy@microtechint.com.

Microtech expects to be shipping in volume on January 4th, 1999, in time
for MacWorld San Francisco. Units will be available through standard
distribution channels, including Ingram Micro and Pinacor.
