Texas Instruments  SN74AVC4T774PWR

This 4-bit noninverting bus transceiver uses two separate configurable power-supplyrails. The A port is designed to track VCCA. VCCAaccepts any supply voltage from 1.2 V to 3.6 V. The B port is designed to trackVCCB. VCCB accepts any supply voltage from 1.2 to 3.6V. The SN74AVC4T774 is optimized to operate withVCCA/VCCB set at 1.4 V to 3.6 V. It is operationalwith VCCA/VCCB as low as 1.2 V. This allows foruniversal low-voltage bi-directional translation between any of the 1.2-V, 1.5-V, 1.8-V, 2.5-V, and3.3-V voltage nodes.

The SN74AVC4T774 is designed for asynchronous communication between data buses. The logiclevels of the direction-control (DIR) input and the output-enable (OE) inputactivate either the B-port outputs or the A-port outputs or place both output ports in thehigh-impedance mode. The device transmits data from the A bus to the B bus when the B outputs areactivated, and from the B bus to the A bus when the A outputs are activated. The input circuitry onboth A and B ports is always active and must have a logic HIGH or LOW level applied to preventexcess ICC and ICCZ.

The SN74AVC4T774 is designed so that the control pins (DIR1, DIR2, DIR3, DIR4, andOE) are supplied by VCCA. This device is fullyspecified for partial-power-down applications using Ioff. TheIoff circuitry disables the outputs, preventing damaging current backflowthrough the device when it is powered down. The VCC isolation featureensures that if either VCC input is at GND, then both ports are in thehigh-impedance state.

To ensure the high-impedance state during power-up or power-down,OE should be tied to VCCA through a pullup resistor;the minimum value of the resistor is determined by the current-sinking capability of the driver.Since this device has CMOS inputs, it is very important to not allow them to float. If the inputsare not driven to either a high VCC state, or a low-GND state, anundesirable larger than expected ICC current may result. Since the inputvoltage settlement is governed by many factors (for example, capacitance, board-layout, packageinductance, surrounding conditions, and so forth), ensuring that they these inputs are kept out oferroneous switching states and tying them to either a high or a low level minimizes theleakage-current.
