The XR32220 product is a 2 driver/ 2 receiver RS-232 transceiver featuring a variable low voltage logic interface, down to 1.65V.
This product is intended for portable or hand-held applications such as notebook and palmtop computers. The XR32220EBER device feature slew-rate limited outputs for reduced crosstalk and EMI. The XR32220EUER device is optimized for high speed with data rates up to 1Mbps, easily meeting the demands of high speed RS-232 applications.
The XR32220 uses an internal high-efficiency charge-pump power supply that requires only four 0.1μF capacitors in 3.3V operation. This charge pump combined with Exar's driver architecture allow the XR32220 to deliver compliant RS-232 performance from a single power supply ranging from +3.0V to +5.5V.
The AUTO ON-LINE® feature allows the device to automatically "wake-up" during a shutdown state when an RS-232 cable is connected and a connected peripheral is turned on. Otherwise, the device automatically shuts itself down drawing 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)

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.
