Diodes Level Shifters Provide High-Speed, Flexible, and Easy-to-Use Logic Translation

Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD) has announced two flexible, high-speed automotive-compliant voltage translators for use in environments with ambient temperatures up to 125°C, the company said.

The PI4ULS5V108Q and PI4ULS5V202Q are designed for use in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), infotainment, and telematics equipment.

Both devices are compatible with either push-pull or open-drain connections, delivering the convenience of a single part number to address multiple applications. In addition, bidirectional flexibility with automatic direction sensing simplifies level shifting between bus interfaces, such as SMBus, PMBus, or I2C devices, by eliminating any requirement for a direction-control signal.

Diodes is a global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic, analog, and mixed-signal semiconductor markets. Diodes serves the consumer electronics, computing, communications, industrial, and automotive markets. Further information is available at www.diodes.com.
