Cypress Clock Device as Level Translator

Last Updated: December 27, 2011

Can I give low voltage input clock to Cypress clock device operating with supply voltage higher than input clock signal voltage and get high voltage clock output?


If input clock Logic-1 voltage is higher than VIHmin  of device for given supply voltage, the device will trigger properly even with higher supply voltage. In this case output clock will be of same voltage as device supply voltage. For example: Clock device operating with 3.3V supply voltage can accept 2.5V input clock signal if VIHmin < 2.5V for 3.3V supply voltage. Clock device output will be of 3.3V.
