In recent years, voltage translation has become an important part of electronic design, especially in portable applications. That’s because the latest data and application processors for mobile applications are typically produced in advanced, low-power CMOS process technologies that use a supply voltage of 1.8 V or lower, but the peripherals they connect to, including memories, image sensors, relays, and RF transceivers, are more likely to use older, lower-cost process technologies that operate at higher levels, at or above 3 or 5 V. Voltage- level translators enable these different devices to work together, without producing damaging current flow or signal loss, so the system operates more efficiently and saves power.
