Bidirectional 8-Channel Level Shifter from Diodes Incorporated Offers Wide Voltage Range and Flexible Output Options

December 18, 2018

PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 18, 2018--Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic, analog and mixed-signal semiconductor markets, today announced the PI4ULS5V108. This device is an 8-channel, high speed, bidirectional level shifter designed for inter-IC communications between devices operating on different voltage supply rails. Targeted applications include PC, servers, networking, telecom, and consumer electronics.

The PI4ULS5V108 supports up to 100 MHz up-translation and greater than 100 MHz down-translation at ≤30pF capacitive load. This allows it to support a wide range of PC or consumer interfaces including GPIO, MDIO, SDIO, UART, SMBus, PMBus, I 2 C, and SPI. It provides voltage level shifting without direction pin control, which minimizes system effort.

This level shifter operates between <0.9V and 5V across eight I/O channels, each of which can be configured with different voltage translation levels for system flexibility. On-resistance is very low, yielding minimal signal distortion, while the wider translation voltage range of the PI4ULS5V108 suits consumer interfaces. Enable and I/O pins are ESD protected (8kV HBM and 1kV CDM).

The 8-bit PI4ULS5V108 is available in the 20-pin TSSOP or 20-pin VQFN 2.5mm x 4.5mm packages. Further information is available at www.diodes.com.
