Enablesengineers with flexibility to design high performance applications with freedom
Embedded World 2016 – Nuremberg, Germany, February 23, 2016 –NXPSemiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today introduced the AXP family of logictranslators, designed for low-power and high-performance applications. Thefamily of AXP translators is the lowest power voltage translator solution inthe market while also offering the widest range of voltage translation from 0.7volts to 5.5 volts. The AXP translators (AXPnT) are ideal for high performanceapplications with Microprocessors/Microcontrollers/SOCs operating at ultra-lowvoltages below 1.8 volts that still need to interface with I/O peripheralsolutions typically operating at 2.5 V, 3.3 V, or even 5.5 V.
In 2014, NXP introduced the AXPfamily of logic devices, offering the lowest power logic functions in theindustry. With today’s introduction of the AXPnT, NXP now offers solutions to interfacingMicroprocessors/Microcontrollers/ASICs operating as low as 0.7 V to peripheraldevices operating as high as 5.5 V.
The AXPnT includes standard buffers,as well as gates and configurable functions. They are available in both leaded and leadless package options, including NXP’s 5-and 6-pin GX packages. These packages arethe smallest leadless logic packages in the industry. By providing the lowestpower voltage translator products, NXP Semiconductors continues to support themigration of applications to lower voltages. The result is greater powersavings for battery powered applications, while at the same time facilitatingthe interfacing of lower-voltage ASICs, microprocessors, microcontrollers, orSOC chips with legacy higher-voltage peripheral devices in the market place.
Features of AXPnT devices
· Dualsupply voltage level translation
o VCCI= 0.7 V to 2.75 V
o VCCO= 1.2 V to 5.5 V
· Verylow dynamic power dissipation (CPD)
· Schmitt-triggeraction on all inputs
· 12mAbalanced output drive
· Over-voltagetolerant inputs and outputs
