This 32-bit noninverting bus transceiver uses two separate, configurable power-supply
rails. The SN74AVC32T245 device is optimized to operate with
VCCA/VCCB set from 1.4 V to 3.6 V. It is operational
with VCCA/VCCB as low as 1.2 V. The A port is
designed to track VCCA. VCCA and accepts any supply
voltage from 1.2 V to 3.6 V. The B port is designed to track VCCB.
VCCB and 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, 1.5V, 1.8 V, 2.5 V, and
3.3 V voltage nodes.
The SN74AVC32T245 is designed for asynchronous communication between data buses. The
device transmits data from the A bus to the B bus or from the B bus to the A bus, depending on the
logic level at the direction-control (DIR) input. The output-enable (OE)
input can disable the outputs so the buses are effectively isolated.
The SN74AVC32T245 is designed so that the control pins (1DIR, 2DIR, 3DIR, 4DIR,
1OE, 2OE, 3OE, and
4OE) are supplied by VCCA.
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, then both ports are in the high-impedance state.
To ensure the high-impedance state during power up or power down,
OE should be tied to VCC through a pullup resistor;
the minimum value of the resistor is determined by the current-sinking capability of the
