Texas Instruments Introduces the World's First Multiple-Function, Single-Supply, Logic Level Translator

SN74AUP1T97/98 Provides PCB Space Savings and Simplified Inventory Management

Apr 22, 2005

DALLAS (April 22, 2005) -Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) today introduced the world´s first multiple-function, single-supply, logic level translator. Providing designers with PCB space savings and reduced Bill of Material part count, the SN74AUP1T97/98 combines common Boolean logic functions and level translation into a single device. This device offers up to 9 configurable gate logic functions, including 4 functional combinations not found in traditional logic gates. Utilizing TI´s Low power AUP (Advanced Ultra Low Power) logic technology, this level translator offers very low Static and Dynamic power consumption for battery-operated end-equipments. (See: www.ti.com/sc/device/sn74AUP1T97 and www.ti.com/sc/device/sn74AUP1T98.) 


The SN74AUP1T97/98 has a single supply-voltage pin, which simplifies trace routing and provides reduced power consumption. The device is optimized to accept 1.8V LVCMOS input signals, while operating from a single 3.3V Vcc supply (1.8V to 3.3V translation), and can also perform voltage translation from 1.8V to 2.5V, 2.5V to 3.3V and 3.3V to 2.5V. The AUP1T97/98 employs Schmitt Trigger Inputs, which eliminate input noise, improve output signal integrity, and allow slow transition of the input signal.
This level translator is offered in the miniature (1.4mm x 0.9mm) Nanostar and NanoFree (Pb-Free) wafer chip scale packages for ultimate space savings in portable applications. This new device joins other TI level translators in the Standard Linear and Logic Must Have (www.ti.com/musthave) product offerings. TI´s Must Have products are a select group of Standard Linear and Logic products that provide a focused priority for the customer. 

Packaging, Pricing, and Availability

The SN74AUP1T97 and SN74AUP1T98 are both offered in TI´s miniature NanoStar and NanoFree, Lead (Pb)-free, packages, as well as traditional SC-70 and SOT-23 packages. The devices are available to sample now. Budgetary pricing for both the SN74AUP1T97DCKR and the SN74AUP1T98DCKR is set at $0.24 in quantities of 1,000.
