Maxim Integrated Products introduces the MAX13046E/MAX13047E 15kV ESD-protected, single-/dual-channel, bidirectional level translators. Designed to provide level shifting for data transfer in multivoltage systems, these devices accept a VL voltage from 1.1V to either 3.6V or (Vcc + 0.3V), whichever is lower, and a Vcc from 1.65V to 5.5V. Over these specified voltage ranges, the MAX13046E/MAX13047E operate at a guaranteed data rate of 8Mbit/s; within specific voltage domains, higher data rates are possible. Integrating 15kV ESD-protection circuitry in tiny microDFN, TDFN, and UTQFN packages, these devices save board space while providing enhanced protection for applications that route signals externally. Consequently, the MAX13046E/MAX13047E are ideal for data transfer between low-voltage ASICs/PLDs and higher-voltage systems.

The MAX13046E/MAX13047E also feature thermal short-circuit protection and a shutdown mode that reduces the supply current to less than 1microamp. Fully specified over the -40C to +85C extended temperature range, the MAX13046E is available in a 1mm x 1.5mm, 6-pin microDFN package, while the MAX13047E is available in 2mm x 2mm, 8-pin TDFN and tiny, 1.4mm x 1.8mm, 10-pin UTQFN packages. Prices start at $0.90 (1,000 units and up).
