LEVEL TRANSLATOR BIDIR 4-CH TDFN-14
The MAX14611 is a quad bidirectional logic-level transla- tor that provides the level shifting necessary to allow data transfer in a multivoltage system. Externally applied volt- ages, VCC and VL, set the logic levels on either side of the device. A low-voltage logic signal present on the VL side of the device appears as a high-voltage logic signal on the VCC side of the device, and vice-versa. The device is ideal for I2C bus as well as MDIO bus appli- cations where open-drain operation is often required. The device features a three-state output mode (TS). Drive TS high to connect the pullup to the powered I/O port. This allows for continuous, undisrupted I2C operation on the powered side of the device while the level translation function is off. The MAX14611 is a pin-to-pin compatible upgrade to the MAX3378E in the TDFN package. The MAX14611 features enhanced high-electrostatic- discharge (ESD) protection on all I/OVCC_ ports up to ±6kV HBM. The device operates over the -40NC to +85NC extended temperature range and is available in 3mm x 3mm, 14-pin TDFN and 4.9mm x 5.1mm, 14-pin TSSOP packages.
