logic portfolio with new devices

2018-01-05 - The new voltage converter expands the reach of logic products

Nexperia is expanding its logic portfolio with new devices that increase the company’s translator solutions into the standard logic shift register arena.

The first translator solution in the expanded range, 74LVC8T595 is claimed to be a world’s first: a cascadable 8-bit serial-in, parallel-out I/O expansion device that combines shift register function with voltage translation. This single-chip solution replaces two devices, delivering higher levels of integration and a smaller footprint. It operates in the 1.1V to 5.5V range, enabling newer low-voltage controllers to interface with legacy solutions.

The company markets low power 5V, 3.3V and 1.8.V translator solutions and it is bringing this capability to its new standard logic voltage translating shift register products. Commented Nexperia’s senior product manager for Logic, Michael Lyons: “These new devices are helping to create a market by enabling voltage-level translation for new low-voltage controllers to interface with legacy solutions and vice versa. Our devices save space and BOM costs and help to improve system integration and performance.”
