FXM2IC102 I2C interface

Fairchild Semiconductor provides designers with an I?C voltage translator that operates over a wide voltage range (1.65V to 5.5V) to accommodate the needs of I?C and low-voltage applications. The FXM2IC102's I?C interface and open drain output offers designers a simple way to interface with Bluetooth and display screens in cellphones, notebooks and other applications. With the I?C interface, only two lines (clock and data) are required for full duplexed communication. To save space in these applications, the translator is housed in compact 1.6mm x 1.6mm MicroPak packaging.

The FXM2IC102 also features a dynamic output drive specification and robust ESD protection. Dynamic output drive allows the FXM2IC102 to quickly drive highly capacitive loads (as high as 400pF) that are often found in I?C applications such as cellphones, notebooks, portable GPS and cameras. Its strong ESD protection (15kV on I/O pins) allows it to be placed close to the external environment without the risk of damage from an ESD event.

FXM2IC102 is part of a broad portfolio of application-specific logic translators. This includes the industry's first 4bit, low voltage, dual supply voltage translator with independent-direction controls, said to be the industry's only single-bit, bidirectional voltage translator with guaranteed performance down to 1.1V and the industry's first dual-supply, bidirectional translator with independent-direction controls.

The FXM2IC102 uses Pb-free terminals and has been characterized for moisture sensitivity in accordance with the Pb-free reflow requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020. All of Fairchild's products are designed to meet the requirements of the European Union's directive on RoHS.

Price for 1,000 pieces starts at 38 cents. Samples are available now with delivery of 8 weeks ARO.
