Exar offers the industry’s largest portfolio of multiprotocol transceivers. Our dual protocol transceivers operate up to 20Mbps and allow RS-232 or RS-485 communication in a single IC. Our multiprotocol transceivers operate up to 52Mbps and support up to 12 serial protocols: RS-232, RS-485, RS-422, RS-449, EIA-530, EIA-530A, V.10, V.11, V.28, V.35, V.36 and X.21. Advanced features, like built-in cable termination, adjustable logic level, diagnostic loopback modes and 15kV ESD protection, provide maximum versatility and robust serial communication and greatly simplify the use of multiple serial protocol standards over a single connector.
