Product Details

The MAX13013/MAX13014/MAX3023 single-/dual-/quad-level translators provide the level shifting necessary to allow 100Mbps data transfer in a multivoltage system. Externally applied voltages, VCC and VL, set the logic levels on either side of the device. Logic signals present on the VL side of the device appear as a higher voltage logic signal on the VCC side of the device, and vice-versa.

The MAX13013 single-, the MAX13014 dual-, and the MAX3023 (UCSP™ package) quad-level translators feature an enable (EN) input. The MAX3023 (TSSOP package) quad-level translator features EN and EN inputs. When disabled, each device places all inputs/outputs on both sides in tri-state and reduces the VCC supply current to 0.03µA, and the VL supply current to 0.1µA. These devices operate at a guaranteed 100Mbps data rate for VL > 1.8V.

The MAX13013/MAX13014/MAX3023 accept a +1.65V to +3.6V VCC voltage and a +1.2V to (VCC - 0.4V) VL voltage, making them ideal for data transfer between low-voltage ASICs/programmable logic devices (PLDs) and higher voltage systems. The MAX13013 is available in 3 x 2 UCSP and 6-pin SC70 packages. The MAX13014 is available in 3 x 3 UCSP and 8-pin SOT23 packages. The MAX3023 is available in 4 x 3 UCSP and 14-pin TSSOP packages. All devices operate over the extended -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
