This dual-bit noninverting bus transceiver uses two separate configurable power-supply
rails. The A port is designed to track VCCA. VCCA
accepts any supply voltage from 1.2 V to 3.6 V. The B port is designed to track
VCCB. VCCB accepts any supply voltage from 1.2 V to
3.6 V. This allows for universal low-voltage bidirectional translation between any of the 1.2 V,
1.5 V, 1.8 V, 2.5 V, and 3.3 V voltage nodes.
The SN74AVC2T245 is designed for asynchronous communication between two data buses. The
logic levels of the direction-control (DIR) input and the output-enable (OE)
activate either the B-port outputs or the A-port outputs or place both output ports into the
high-impedance mode . The device transmits data from the A bus to the B bus when the B-port outputs
are activated and from the B bus to the A bus when the A-port outputs are activated. The input
circuitry on both A and B ports always is active and must have a logic HIGH or LOW level applied to
prevent excess ICC and ICCZ.
The SN74AVC2T245 control pins (DIR1, DIR2, and OE) are supplied by
This device is fully specified for partial-power-down applications using
Ioff. The Ioff circuitry disables the outputs,
preventing damaging current backflow through the device when it is powered down.
The VCC isolation feature ensures that if either
VCC input is at GND, both ports are in the high-impedance state.
To ensure the high-impedance state during power up or power down,
OE must be connected to VCC through a pull-up
resistor; the minimum value of the resistor is determined by the current-sinking capability of the
