App note: Bi-directional translator architectures

Sunday, August 16th, 2015

Voltage translation app note from Fairchild Semiconductors, this app note include their auto bi-directional voltage translator that removes the burden of direction control. Link here (PDF) Voltage translators, or “level shifters” as they are sometimes called, allow the coupling of signals that do not share common VCC domains. For example,...

Eagle Parts: Dual supply 8-Bit bidirectional voltage level translator in TSSOP-20

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

We added the TXB0108 dual supply 8-bit bidirectional voltage level translator (TSSOP-20 package) to our library. As the title suggests it translates 8 channels between two voltage levels. There is no direction control. All the pins are bi-directional at all times, and the directions of each pin are independent of...
