The 74AXP2T45 is a 2-bit, dual supply transceiver with 3-state outputs that enables bidirectional level translation. It features two 2-bit input-output ports (nA and nB), a direction control input (DIR) and dual supply pins (VCC(A) and VCC(B)). Both VCC(A) and VCC(B) can be supplied at any voltage between 0.9 V and 5.5 V making the device suitable for translating between any of the low voltage nodes (0.9 V, 1.2 V, 1.5 V, 1.8 V, 2.5 V, 3.3 V and 5.0 V). No power supply sequencing is required and output glitches during power supply transitions are prevented using patented circuitry. As a result glitches will not appear on the outputs for supply transitions during power-up/down between 20 mV/μs and 5.5 V/s. Pins A and DIR are referenced to VCC(A) and pin B is referenced to VCC(B). A HIGH on DIR allows transmission from A to B and a LOW on DIR allows transmission from B to A.
The device is fully specified for partial power-down applications using IOFF. The IOFF circuitry disables the output, preventing any damaging backflow current through the device when it is powered down. In suspend mode when either VCC(A) or VCC(B) are at GND level, both A and B are in the high-impedance OFF-state.
