exar corp (EXAR) Key Developments

Exar Corporation Introduces XR77129, a Quad Output Programmable Universal PMIC

Exar Corporation introduced the XR77129, a quad output programmable Universal PMIC with an input operating voltage range of 6V to 40V. Its patented control architecture is well suited for 40V inputs using a 17-bit wide PID voltage mode VIN feed forward architecture. This controller offers a single input, quad output, step-down switching regulator controller with integrated gate drivers and dual LDO outputs. It can also monitor and dynamically control and configure the power system through an I2C interface. Five configurable GPIOs allow for fast system integration for fault reporting and status or for sequencing control. The XR77129 is quickly configured to power nearly any FPGA, SOC or DSP system through the use of Exar's design tool, PowerArchitect™ and programmed through an Ion2C based SMBus compliant serial interface. PowerArchitect 5.2 has been upgraded to support the additional capabilities of the XR77129 including output voltage ranges beyond the native 0.6V to 5.5V with the use of external feedback resistors. The XR77129 wide input voltage range, low quiescent current of 450uA (standby) and 4mA (operating) make it an excellent choice for a wide range of systems including 18V to 36VDC, 24VDC or rectified AC systems used in the industrial automation and embedded applications.

Exar Corporation Announces Executive Changes

Exar and Dahua Announce High Definition Composite Video Interface Technology Agreement

Exar Corporation announced the signing of a strategic agreement with Dahua to license High Definition Composite Video Interface (HDCVI) technology. Under the terms of the new agreement, Exar is licensed to design, manufacture and sell analog high-definition video solutions utilizing HDCVI technology. High Definition (HD) video is driving tremendous growth in the video surveillance industry but was not available in an industry standard analog format until recently. With the advent of HDCVI, video surveillance professionals now have access to HD video in an analog format suitable for transmission over existing coaxial cable infrastructure.
