2.5 V/3.3 V, 10 Bit, 2 Port Level Translator, Bus Switch
The ADG3246 is a 2.5 V or 3.3 V, 10-bit, 2-port digital switch. It is designed on Analog Devices’ low voltage CMOS process, which provides low power dissipation yet gives high switching speed and very low on resistance, allowing inputs to be connected to outputs without additional propagation delay or generating additional ground bounce noise.
The switches are enabled by means of the bus enable (BE) input signal. These digital switches allow bidirectional signals to be switched when ON. In the OFF condition, signal levels up to the supplies are blocked.
This device is ideal for applications requiring level translation. When operated from a 3.3 V supply, level translation from 3.3 V inputs to 2.5 V outputs occurs. Similarly, if the device is operated from a 2.5 V supply and 2.5 V inputs are applied, the device will translate the outputs to 1.8 V. In addition to this, the ADG3246 has a level translating select pin (SEL). When SEL is low, VCC is reduced internally, allowing for level translation between 3.3 V inputs and 1.8 V outputs. This makes the device suited to applications requiring level translation between different supplies, such as converter to DSP/microcontroller interfacing.

At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
The EVAL-24TSSOPEBZ evaluation board evaluates 24-lead TSSOP devices in the Switches and Multiplexers Portfolio that are purchased separately. A clamp is supplied with the EVAL-24TSSOPEBZ to secure a 24-lead TSSOP device to the evaluation board without the need for soldering, making the board reusable for multiple devices.
A 24-lead TSSOP device can be clamped or soldered to the center of the evaluation board. Each pin of the device has a corresponding link from K1 to K24 that can be set to either VDD or GND. A wire screw terminal supplies VDD and GND. SMB connectors on the board allow additional external signals to be supplied to the device. In addition, there is space available at the top of the board for prototyping.
Full specifications of the device under test (DUT) are available in the corresponding product data sheet, which should be consulted in conjunction with this user guide when using the evaluation board.
