BB expansion header- Level Shifter

Dear Friends,

I am looking for a bi-directional level shifter (1.8 V to 3.3 V) for
SPI communication at BB expansion header. The ADC we are working with
is ADS1258 EVM (working with 3.3 V)

I am thinking to buy http://focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folders/print/txb0108.html

Does any body suggest other product or IC concerning this issue?

Thanks a lot,
Kunal

The TXS0108 series should be fine. There is also a TXB0108 that has different pullup configurations and may or may not be better suited for your specific application. It really depends on whether you need an external pullup or not. These are used on the Beagle for the I2C level shifting.

Hi, TinCanTool uses 74AVC4T774 for level shifting on their Zippy.

Thanks Gerald.

You have recommended TXS0108.

But isn't TXB0108 Auto direction sensing useful here ?

I use TXS0108 for SPI level translation.

Thanks Guys. I ordered TXB0108.

Use this if the data direction changes, such as in an I2C bus.

Use this one for SPI since the direction of the signals are fixed. MOSI, CLK
& CS are all outputs from OMAP and MISO is an input.

your

TXS0108E = ST2378E (the same functionality but slower)

We are using MAX3378 (Maxim product), it’s work very well for GPIO, UART, SPI (tested), and I²C (not tested)
