Translators offer ±15 kV ESD protection on I/O VCC lines.

Press Release Summary:



Suited for high-speed data transfer between low-voltage ASICs/PLDs and higher voltage systems, Models MAX13042E-MAX13045E provide necessary level shifting by operating with VL voltages from 1.62-3.2 V and VCC voltages from 2.2-3.6 V. Over these operating-voltage ranges, they provide data rate of 100 Mbps with external push-pull or open-drain drivers that source 4 mA output current. Units are available in 3 x 3 mm, 14-pin TDFN and 1.54 x 2.12 mm, 12-bump UCSP packages.



Original Press Release:



High-Speed, 4-Channel, Bidirectional Level Translators Provide ±15kV ESD Protection and Low-Voltage Operation in a Tiny UCSP



SUNNYVALE, CA-July 3, 2007-Maxim Integrated Products (NASDAQ: MXIM) introduces the MAX13042E-MAX13045E* high-speed, 4-channel, bidirectional level translators with ±15kV ESD protection on I/O VCC lines. These devices provide the level shifting necessary for high-speed data transfer in multivoltage systems by operating with VL voltages from +1.62V to +3.2V and VCC voltages from +2.2V to +3.6V. Over these operating-voltage ranges, the MAX13042E-MAX13045E provide a guaranteed data rate of 100Mbps with external push-pull or open-drain drivers that source as little as 4mA output current. Offering low-voltage operation and ESD protection in a tiny, 1.54mm x 2.12mm UCSP(TM), these bidirectional level translators are ideal for high-speed data transfer between low-voltage ASICs/PLDs and higher voltage systems.

The MAX13042E-MAX13045E increase design flexibility through their ability to operate at full speed with external drivers that source as low as 4mA output current. Their compatibility with both push-pull and open-drain drivers is enabled by a pass-gate architecture and by the integration of internal current sources that are capable of sourcing 30mA to pull up the I/O lines.

The bidirectional level translators are fully specified over the extended temperature range (-40°C to +85°C). They are available in tiny, 3mm x 3mm, 14-pin TDFN and 1.54mm x 2.12mm, 12-bump UCSP packages. Prices start at $1.20 (1000-up, FOB USA).

*The MAX13044E and MAX13045E are future products-please contact factory for availability.
