DescriptionThe SP3220E devices are RS-232 driver/receiver solutions intended for portable or hand-held applications such as palmtop computers, instrumentation and consumer products. These devices incorporate a high-efficiency charge-pump power supply that allows the SP3220E devices to deliver true RS-232 performance from a single power supply ranging from +3.0V to +5.0V. This charge pump requires only 0.1μF capacitors in 3.3V operation. The ESD tolerance of these devices is over ±15kV for both Human Model and IEC1000-4-2 Air discharge test methods. All devices have a low-power shutdown mode where the driver outputs and charge pumps are disabled. During shutdown, the supply current falls to less than 1μA.

Frequently Asked Questions
For RS-232 it is 50 feet (15 meters), or the cable length equal to a capacitance of 2500 pF, at a maximum transmission rate of 19.2kbps. When we reduce the baud rate, it allows for longer cable length. For Example:
Baud Rate (bps)
Maximum RS-232 Cable Length (ft)
In this example, we looked for XRA1201. When you hover over it, it will turn grey and you can click anywhere in the grey box. This brings you to the product page. For example:
Click on Parts & Purchasing, highlighted in yellow above. The screen changes to:
Notice the status column and the “Show obsolete parts” link:
A legend tells you the definition of the different statuses. Click on the “Show obsolete parts” link to see EOL or OBS part numbers along with the Active part numbers:
Another method to find out if a part is OBS or EOL is to click on SUPPORT:
And then Product Change Notifications
Type the part into the search, and click on one of the part numbers from the drop down menu. Then you can look for the Product Discontinuation Notice, which generally is at the top of the list, for example:
If you see this, it tells you that this particular orderable part has been discontinued and when the last order date is, or was. If you click on the file, then you can view the notice we sent about this if you purchased the part in the recent past. It may also advise of a replacement part. When an orderable part first becomes discontinued, Product Discontinuation Notices are sent are sent to those who have purchased the parts in the recent past, if purchased directly, with a dated opportunity to place a last order.
