Raspberry Pi level shifters and monitoring

Stuff4Pi posted his ConvertPi, a Raspberry Pi GPIO full level converter & monitoring, in the project log forum:

I would like to introduce my first Raspberry board: a GPIO bi-directional level translator (3.3V <-> 5V):
– This is an in-between expansion board that you plug in the RPi P1 connector which gives a bi-directional level shifter for each GPIO (x 17)
– The board also acts as a monitoring as each GPIO has it’s own LED for visualization of its state. The LEDs are buffered meaning that they don’t have any influence on devices you may connect to the GPIOs
– Finally, there is a mini (micro!) prototype area with replication of the 5V GPIO

You can find project details on Stuff4Pi website.

    What no eagle files? No schematic??

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
