Exar Corporation (EXAR - Snapshot Report), a major supplier of mixed-signal components, recently introduced three high-speed operational amplifiers for analog devices, namely XR8051, XR8052 and XR8054.

The new amplifiers are pin compatible substitutes for 110MHz analog devices AD8051 and AD8052 and 150MHz AD8054.

The XR805x range of amplifiers deliver high-quality performance and is more power efficient, making it ideal for devices like video distribution and surveillance systems, IPC  cameras, active filter circuits, coaxial cable drivers and electronic white boards.

Moreover, this new series by Exar is capable of driving four video loads and functioning within wide voltage ranges for supporting general purpose high-speed applications.

Last week, the company introduced the XR9200 Coprocessor family to cater to the requirements of high-system performance applications in data analytics and storage. The Coprocessor is suitable for cloud security applications such as Data Warehouses, Hadoop Clusters, Storage Arrays, Application Delivery Controllers (ADC), WAN Optimization Appliances and Security Gateways.

Moreover, a few months back, Exar had introduced a product named XRP6670, which is capable of accurate management of electromagnetic interference (EMI) compliance and compatible with space-sensitive applications.

Fremont, CA–based Exar designs and manufactures analog mixed-signal integrated circuits and advanced sub-system solutions. Connectivity and power management devices are one of the four product portfolios of the company. Its other product portfolios include communications products, network security and storage optimization solutions.
