The MAX13000E–MAX13005E 6-channel level translators provide the level shifting necessary to allow data transfer in multivoltage systems. Externally applied voltages, VCC
, set the logic levels on either side of the device. Logic signals present on the VL
side of the device appear as higher voltage logic signals on the VCC
side of the device, and vice-versa.
The MAX13000E–MAX13005E feature a low VCC
quiescent supply current less than 4µA. The MAX13000E–MAX13005E also have ±15kV ESD protection on the I/O VCC
side for greater protection in applications that route signals externally. The ESD protection is specified using the Human Body Model (HBM). The MAX13000E/MAX13001E/MAX13002E operate at a guaranteed 230kbps data rate. The MAX13003E/MAX13004E/MAX13005E operate at a guaranteed 20Mbps data rate when VCC
The MAX13000E/MAX13003E are bidirectional level translators, allowing data translation in either direction (VL
) on any single data line without a DIRECTION input. The MAX13001E/MAX13002E/MAX13004E/MAX13005E unidirectional level translators level shift data in one direction (VL
) on any single data line. The MAX13001E/MAX13002E/MAX13004E/MAX13005E unidirectional translators' inputs have the capability to interface with both CMOS and open-drain (OD) outputs. For more information see the Ordering Information, Selector Guide
, and the Input-Driver Requirements
sections in the full data sheet.
The MAX13000E–MAX13005E operate with +0.9V to +3.6V VL
voltages and +1.5V to +3.6V VCC
voltages. The MAX13000E–MAX13005E are available in 16-bump UCSP™ and 16-pin TSSOP packages, and are specified over the extended -40°C to +85°C operating temperature range.
