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.
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.
A 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 K6 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 user guide UG- 948 when using the evaluation board.
