Dual-channel translator features low-voltage operation, shutdown supply current

Maxim Integrated Products introduced the MAX3397E 2-channel, bidirectional level translator in a 2 x 2-mm microDFN package. This device provides level shifting for data transfer in a multivoltage system by accepting voltage ranges from +1.2 V to +5.5 V on the VL side and +1.65 V to +5.5 V on the ±15 kV, ESD-protected, Vcc side.
