What is a Logic Translator?
A logic translator is a semiconductor chip which translates a logic signal from one type to another. An example would be Emitter-Coupled Logic (ECL) to Transistor-Transistor Logic (TTL). The methods of translation vary according to the number of lines that need to be translated, the speed of the digital signals and the range of voltages encountered.
Types of Logic Translators
There are several different kinds of logic translators. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by number of channels, input type, output type, data rate, maximum operating frequency, packaging type and supply voltage. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common sizes for the number of channels are 1, 2 and 4 channels. We also carry logic translators with up to 22 channels. Maximum operating frequency can be up to 8 GHz, with the most common sizes being 100 MHz, 275 MHz and 1 GHz.
