Product Details

The MAX13046E/MAX13047E ±15kV ESD-protected bidirectional level translators provide level shifting for data transfer in a multivoltage system. The MAX13046E is a single-channel translator, and the MAX13047E is a dual-channel translator. Externally applied voltages, VCC and VL, set the logic level on either side of the device. The MAX13046E/MAX13047E utilize a transmission-gate-based design to allow data translation in either direction (VL ⇔ VCC) on any single data line. The MAX13046E/MAX13047E accept VL from +1.1V to the minimum of either +3.6V or (VCC + 0.3V), and VCC from +1.65V to +5.5V, making these devices ideal for data transfer between low-voltage ASICs/PLDs and higher voltage systems.

The MAX13046E/MAX13047E feature a shutdown mode that reduces supply current to less than 1µA thermal short-circuit protection, and ±15kV ESD protection on the VCC side for enhanced protection in applications that route signals externally. The MAX13046E/MAX13047E operate at a guaranteed data rate of 8Mbps when push-pull driving is used.

The MAX13046E is available in a 6-pin µDFN package, and the MAX13047E is available in a 10-pin UTQFN. Both devices are specified over the extended -40°C to +85°C operating temperature range.
