  • 3Com is still several months away from introducing products, but will most likely use PCMCIA as the fist card level form factor.

  • Proxim Inc. has registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for a proposed initial public offering of 2 million shares of stock. The Mountain View company is a leading manufacturer of SS wireless local area networking products.

  • DSP Group Inc. has filed with the SEC to sell 1.85 million shares in an initial public offering. DSP Group develops digital signal processing software and integrated circuits for digital speech products, including wireless, PCS and cellular systems.

  • Ameritech Corp. and General Electric Co. announced a joint venture Monday to sell electronic data networks to multinational companies. Ameritech, the Midwestern regional phone company, is barred by a federal court decree from the long-distance communications business.
