6-Channel High-Speed Logic-Level Translators

High-Speed (100Mbps), 6-Channel Translators Compatible with 4mA Drivers

Product Details

The MAX13030E–MAX13035E 6-channel, bidirectional level translators provide the level shifting necessary for 100Mbps data transfer in multivoltage systems. The MAX13030E–MAX13035E are ideally suited for memory-card level translation, as well as generic level translation in systems with six channels. 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 MAX13035E features a CLK_RET output that returns the same clock signal applied to the CLK_VL input.

The MAX13030E–MAX13035E operate at full speed with external drivers that source as little as 4mA output current. Each I/O channel is pulled up to VCC or VL by an internal 30μA current source, allowing the MAX13030E–MAX13035E to be driven by either push-pull or open-drain drivers.

The MAX13030E–MAX13034E feature an enable (EN) input that places the device into a low-power shutdown mode when driven low. The MAX13030E–MAX13035E features an automatic shutdown mode that disables the part when VCC is less than VL. The state of I/O VCC_ and I/O VL_ during shutdown is chosen by selecting the appropriate part version (see Ordering Information/Selector Guide located within the full datasheet).

The MAX13030E–MAX13035E accept VCC voltages from +2.2V to +3.6V and VL voltages from +1.62V to +3.2V, making them ideal for data transfer between low-voltage ASIC/PLDs and higher voltage systems. The MAX13030E–MAX13035E are available in 16-bump UCSP (2mm x 2mm) and 16-pin TQFN (4mm x 4mm) packages, and operate over the extended -40°C to +85°C temperature range.

Description

The MAX13035E evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the MAX13035E 6-channel, bidirectional logic-level translator used for interfacing with secure digital (SD) memory cards. The EV kit features SD memory card interface and general-purpose interface connections. The MAX13035E IC guarantees data rates up to 100Mbps. The MAX13035E translates between VL and VCC logic levels. The VL range is 1.62V to 3.2V and the ±15kV ESD-protected VCC range is 2.2V to 3.6V.

The EV kit also includes the MAX3202E, a dual-channel ESD protection array for complete line protection.
