"Calxeda is pioneering the server market with low power ARM SOCs and extends this philosophy to the entire system creating the lowest power systems available," said Karl Freund, Calxeda vice president of marketing. "Using that same philosophy, our designers are using the XRP7724 for better power optimization and configurability on our already low power systems. Along with easy to use design tools that improve time to market, Exar's technology was the right choice for Calxeda."

As the server market shifts to low power CPUs in higher densities, Calxeda has been instrumental in defining the requirements of this new server market.  Power XR enables Calxeda to dynamically control their power system, achieving 1/20 th the power consumption of other programmable solutions on the market today.
