As processors’ core voltage continue to migrate to lower voltages while most I2C peripheral devices operate at 3.3-V or 5-V supply, voltage level translation devices help engineers solve voltage mismatch dilemma seen in many designs today. However, selecting the right solution is never intuitive. This course will present the auto bi-directional translators that are designed for I2C-bus applications when interfacing devices that are operating at different voltage levels. The voltage level translators improved connectivity between next generation processors and I2C-bus peripheral devices. The course will also discuss other factors to consider when selecting a voltage translation solution.

What the audience will learn:

  1. Why Voltage level translation is required
  2. I2C-bus application examples
  3. Possible solutions
