Features & Applications
EXAR, the market leader, offers the industry's broadest line-up of UART and serial protocol transceivers solutions.

With over 200 devices, wide 2.25 to 5.5V power supply range, 1 to 128 bytes of FIFO and compliance with the universal 3.3/5V PCI, Intel and Motorola bus interfaces, including single protocol ICs that support RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485 as well as dual and multi-protocol ICs that support from 2 to 8 of the most popular interface standards with a single IC, Exar has already done the difficult work for you.

We can deliver an immediate competitive advantage to your compressed time-to-market demands accelerating initial design, to functioning prototype and finally volume production.

The SP207EH/208EH/211EH/213EH devices are high speed enhanced multi-channel RS-232 line transceivers with improved electrical performance.

The SP207EH/208EH/211EH/213EH series is a superior drop-in replacement to our previous versions as well as popular industry standards.

All devices feature low-power CMOS construction and the Sipex-patented (5,306,954) on-board charge pump circuitry that generates the +10V RS-232 voltage levels using 0.1mF charge pump capacitors.

The SP211E and SP213E devices feature a low-power shutdown mode, which reduces power supply drain to 1mA. Enhancements to this series include a higher transmission rate of 500Kbps, a lower power supply current at 3mA typical (no load), and superior ESD performance. The ESD tolerance has been improved for this series to over +15kV for both Human Body Model and IEC1000-4-2 Air Discharge test methods.
