*** New single-chip, fast ethernet transceiver sets new standards

Level One Communications Inc., a developer of Ethernet IC
communications technology, announced Tuesday a breakthrough in Fast
Ethernet performance. The company introduced a flexible 10/100-TX
single-chip CMOS Ethernet transceiver that operates at distances in
excess of 140 meters and can also be designed into 100BASE-FX fiber
equipment. The new LXT970 Fast Ethernet transceiver supports standard
Ethernet (CSMA/CD) and full-duplex operation at 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps.
Unlike other 10/100 Ethernet transceivers, the LXT970 includes a
fiber-compatible, ECL-type interface for use with 100BASE-FX networks.
