Adding buffers to output of ADG330x Level Translators

I would like to use the ADG3304 for bi-directional level translation of trigger signals.  The cables are fairly long, so I am concerned about needing to increase the drive capability of the device using buffers.  If this is needed, then the signals would be uni-directional, unless the buffers could be switched; automatic switching preferred.


Please recommend an applications solution using Analog Devices specific part numbers for the buffers and switches if needed.  As an alternalte soulution, would it be better to use a level translator that has a greater output drive capability such as one for an I2C application?  If so, does Analog Devices have a device for this solution?


Best Regards,
