Single-Channel Level Translator with Bi-directional 1.65 V to 3.6 V Level Shift
The ADG3231 is a Level Translator designed on a sub micron process which operates from supplies as low as 1.65 V. The device is guaranteed for operation over the supply range 1.65 V to 3.6 V. It operates from two supply voltages allowing bi-directional level translation, i.e. it translates low voltages to higher voltages and vice versa. The signal path is uni-directional, data may only flow from A1 to Y1.
This type of device may be used in applications requiring communication between devices operating from different supply levels.
The level translator is packaged in one of the smallest footprints available for its pin count. The 6 lead SOT23 package requires only 5.28mm2 max board space.
