San Jose, Calif. Fairchild Semiconductor has rolled out a single-bit, bi-directional voltage translator with guaranteed operation from 1.1 V to 3.6 V for ultra-portable, computing, communication and industrial applications. The FXLH1T45 voltage translator interfaces processors to electronic subsystems operating at different voltage levels by providing both uni-directional and bi-directional translation between a variety of voltage levels. The 1.1-V operation makes the FXLH1T45 suitable for the low-power requirements of ultra-portable applications.
The FXLH1T45 is fully configurable. The A port tracks the level of the VCCA supply and the B port tracks the level of the VCCB supply. Both supplies are independent, allowing the user to select the translation levels and set the high side or low side as desired. In addition, the FXLH1T45 device's bushold on the data outputs eliminates the need for external pull-up or pull-down resistors, which saves additional board space.
Housed in an ultra-compact (1 x 1.45 mm) 6-terminal MicroPak package saves 65 percent more board space than translators in SC70 packages, and the large 0.2 x 0.3-mm LGA contact pads ensure joint integrity for reliable operation under harsh environmental conditions such as excessive jarring or stresses due to impact.
The FXLH1T45 uses lead-free (Pb-free) terminals and has been characterized for moisture sensitivity in accordance with the Pb-free reflow requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020. The device is also RoHS compliant.
