Intro to voltage-level translation

Posted: 11 Jun 2009     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:voltage  circuit design  voltage level 

Advances in manufacturing processes in the fabrication of semiconductors have allowed for smaller geometries in circuit design and lower supply voltage levels. These advances in technology support many of the low-power, high-performance applications currently being designed. To use these new designs with existing technology, there must be a means to match the output voltage level of one device with the input voltage level of another device in the circuit.

Circuit designers are faced with the challenge of developing systems with increasing functionality and complexity while under demanding power and time-to-market constraints. Such systems often require voltage level translation devices to allow interfacing between IC devices built from different process technologies. The choice of the proper voltage level translation device depends on many factors and will affect the performance and efficiency of the circuit application.
