Description

The MAX13101E/MAX13102E/MAX13103E/MAX13108E 16-bit bidirectional CMOS logic-level translators provide the level shifting necessary to allow data transfer in multivoltage systems. These devices are inherently bidirectional due to their design and do not require the use of a direction input. Externally applied voltages, VCC and VL, set the logic levels on either side of the devices. 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 MAX13101E/MAX13102E/MAX13103E feature an enable input (EN) that, when low, reduces the VCC and VL supply currents to less than 2µA. The MAX13108E features a multiplexing input (MULT) that selects one byte between the two, thus allowing multiplexing of the signals. The MAX13101E/MAX13102E/MAX13103E/MAX13108E have ±15kV ESD protection on the I/O VCC side for greater protection in applications that route signals externally. Three different output configurations are available during shutdown, allowing the I/O on the VCC side or the VL side to be put in a high-impedance state or pulled to ground through an internal 6kΩ resistor.

The MAX13101E/MAX13102E/MAX13103E/MAX13108E accept VCC voltages from +1.65V to +5.5V and VL voltages from +1.2V to VCC, making them ideal for data transfer between low-voltage ASICs/PLDs and higher voltage systems. The MAX13101E/MAX13102E/MAX13103E/MAX13108E are available in 36-bump WLP and 40-pin TQFN packages, and operate over the extended -40°C to +85°C temperature range. See the Ordering Information in the full data sheet.
