The LSF family consists of bidirectional voltage level translators that operate from 0.8V to 4.5 V (Vref_A) and 1.8 V to 5.5 V (Vref_B). This range allows for bidirectional voltagetranslations between 0.8 V and 5.0 V without the need for a direction terminal in open-drain orpush-pull applications. The LSF family supports level translation applications with transmissionspeeds greater than 100 MHz for open-drain systems that utilize a 15-pF capacitance and 165-Ωpull-up resistor.

When the An or Bn port is LOW, the switch is in the ON-state and a low resistanceconnection exists between the An and Bn ports. The low Ron of the switchallows connections to be made with minimal propagation delay and signal distortion. The voltage onthe A or B side will be limited to Vref_A and can be pulled up to any level between Vref_A and 5 V.This functionality allows a seamless translation between higher and lower voltages selected by theuser without the need for directional control.

The supply voltage (Vpu#) for each channel may be individuallyset up with a pull up resistor. For example, CH1 may be used in up-translation mode (1.2 V ↔ 3.3 V)and CH2 in down-translation mode (2.5 V ↔ 1.8 V).

When EN is HIGH, the translator switch is on, and the An I/O is connected to the Bn I/O,respectively, allowing bidirectional data flow between ports. When EN is LOW, the translator switchis off, and a high-impedance state exists between ports. The EN input circuit is designed to besupplied by Vref_A. EN must be LOW to ensure the high-impedance state during power-up orpower-down.
