Richmond, Calif— November 1, 2001— Keyspan, announced is now shipping

Keyspan USB Serial adapters are widely used in the Macintosh community to
connect USB-based Macs to serial devices such as digital cameras, Palm
Pilots, GPS units, mobile phones, printers, graphics tablets, modems,
handheld scanners, point of sale equipment, and various types of medical,
scientific, and manufacturing instrumentation.

“Some USB connectivity vendors have chosen not to support Mac OS X,” notes
Mike Ridenhour, president of Keyspan. “In contrast, since day one, Keyspan
has supported USB on the Mac platform and the Macintosh community can count
on us to continue to support Mac OS X.”
Keyspan products provide “Connections for Your Computer.” The company’s
first products provided serial ports for connecting to traditional computer
peripherals such as modems, printers and graphics tablets. Over time,
Keyspan has expanded its horizons, connecting the Macintosh and PC to the
other items found in the home, school and office.
