Ultra low power voltage translation

I'm looking on the best way to interface 2.2V and 1.8V systems. Direct connection draws ~40uA. I only have 20uA in my budget. I have tried a bus switch solution, but apparently they are optimized more for speed than for power, and all of them contain pullup resistors of 40K or less drawing too much excess current. I need two logic lines down, two logic lines up, and one logic line bi-directional. The speed is not critical to the design. Thanks for any thoughts on this.

  • Hi limonandrey,

    Have you looked at the ADG324x(ADG3242/3243) and ADG330x(ADG3301/ADG3304) families of level translators?

    The quiescent current for these is in the uA region and they don't have internal  pull-up resistors. Both parts support bi-directional data flow though the channel, but the ADG324x can only perform step-down translation(higher voltage logic into lower voltage logic) while the ADG3300x supports both step-up and step-down translation.
