The TXB0104 IC is a nice little level translator. Often we come accross situations in electronics design where we want to connect a 3.3V controller like the Raspberry pi to a 5V peripheral device or chip, it solves this problem with ease. Also when connecting 2 devices with different voltage levels using SPI, I2C etc, a stable level translator is required. This breakout board has 4 bidirectional channels. All the channels are controlled by OE pin. This pin is required to be high for data transmission. This pin taken out on the board on both ends, so that any of the two connecting devices can control the transmission.
- Fits on breadboard!
- All 4 channels taken out
- 1.2 V to 3.6 V on A Port and 1.65 V to 5.5 V on B Port
- Low power consumption
