Widest voltage range logic translation devices reduce board space by more than 50 percent
Bangalore, Feb. 21st, 2014 — Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the industry’s first logic devices to fully integrate logic gate and up/down translation functionality operating from a single power supply, reducing board space by more than 50 percent compared to discrete solutions. The SN74LV1T family also offers the widest operating voltage range, from 1.8 to 5 V, for flexibility in the computing functionality of applications like tablets, smartphones, PCs and servers. Because the SN74LV1T family is 5-V tolerant and supports up to 125C temperatures, it can also be utilized in industrial and telecommunications applications as a logic gate, translator or both. This eliminates the need for multiple logic ICs and eases procurement management. For more information and to order samples, visit www.ti.com/sn74lv1t-pr.
The SN74LV1T family is available in nine different logic gates: NAND and AND, NOR, OR and XOR, as well as several different buffer functions. In addition to the SN74LV1T family, TI provides a complete logic portfolio including buffers, drivers, gates flip-flops, switches, I2C and voltage translation to provide increased application flexibility, higher performance and design longevity compared to competitors.
Key features and benefits of the SN74LV1T family
- More than 50 percent board reduction: Integrates the up and down level shifter with the logic gate driver to cut board space by more than half compared to multiple device and discrete solutions, to support space-constrained, cost-sensitive consumer applications.
- Widest voltage range: To satisfy the requirements for a broad range of applications, the family offers the widest voltage range compared to competitive devices.
- Eases routing: Needs only a single power supply to perform up/down translation across multiple logic functions, easing routing for the designer during board layout.
- Extended temperature range: Satisfies the needs of harsh industrial environments with an extended temperature range from -40 to 125C.
Availability, packaging and pricing
The SN74LV1T family is available in standard 5-pin SOT-23 and SC70 packages. Suggested retail pricing in 1,000-unit quantities starts at US$0.17.
