Exar Corporation designs, develops, and markets analog mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs) and advanced sub-system solutions for the networking and storage, industrial and embedded systems, and communications infrastructure markets. Markets and Products The company’s products are organized into six product lines, including connectivity components, power management components, data compression and storage solutions, communications products, high performance analog components, and video processor solutions. Connectivity Components The company offers a line of Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitters (UARTs) solutions, as well as complementary serial transceiver devices for use in applications in the communications infrastructure, networking and storage, industrial and embedded systems. Typical applications include point-of-sale, process control, and factory automation, as well as servers, embedded systems, routers, network management equipment, remote access servers, wireless base-stations, and repeaters. The company supports central processing unit (CPU) bus interfaces, such as 8-bit Industry Standard Architecture, 8-bit VLIO, 2-wire inter-integrate circuit, 4-wire Serial peripheral interface, peripheral component interconnect, peripheral interconnect express and universal serial bus. The company’s serial transceiver solutions consist of recommended standard (RS)-232, RS-485, RS-422 and multiprotocol devices that ensure connectivity between computing devices. Its RS-232, RS-485 and RS-422 transceivers comply with international standards in delivering multi-channel digital signals between two systems. The company’s proprietary multiprotocol transceivers enable network equipment to communicate with a large population of peripherals that use a set of serial protocol standards without the added burden of multiple add-on boards and cables. Power Management Components The company has developed solutions for DC/DC voltage conversion and supervision. Its products are designed to meet the needs of various communications infrastructure, networking and storage, industrial and embedded systems. The company provides analog control of DC voltages and deliver regulated power to electronic systems, such as data and telecommunication systems, servers and routers, enterprise storage systems, industrial control and process automation equipment, set top boxes, digital video recorders and portable electronic devices. Its PowerXR programmable power management system solutions provide system designers the ability to reconfigure the power management sub-system through a software interface. Data Compression and Storage Solutions The company provides highly integrated semiconductors and board level products. Its chips and boards can achieve compression throughput of between 10Gbps to 40Gbps. The company’s solution off-loads specific tasks from the general purpose CPU by providing compression and hashing technology in a single pass with low latency to reduce and de-duplicate data at very high throughput. The company’s devices enable networking equipment vendors to supply cloud infrastructure. Its devices and board level products are supported by its software development kit (SDK) and also by an open-source Exalerator solution software kit. Communications Components The company provides communications products for the transmission of digital data through global service provider networks. Conforming to international standards for copper, fiber optic and wireless protocols, its portfolio of Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy (PDH), Synchronous Optical NETwork (SONET) and Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) products enable the delivery of highly reliable, value added communication services. The company’s portfolio of SONET/SDH products process data at speeds from 155Mbps to 40Gbps for the efficient transport of digital data over fiber optic networks. Products include mixed signal clock and data recovery circuits, transceivers, protocol framers and service mappers. The company offers a portfolio of T1 and E1 devices for twisted pair copper connections and DS3 and E3 devices for coaxial copper connectio
