The device is an SD 3.0-compliant bidirectional dual voltage level translator without direction pin control. It can translate the memory card voltage to 1.8V or 3.0V signal levels from 1.2V to 1.8V of host side and supports SD 3.0 SDR104(208Mhz), SDR50(100Mhz), DDR50(50Mhz), SDR25(50Mhz), SDR12(25Mhz) and SD 2.0
High-Speed (50 MHz) and Default-Speed (25 MHz) modes. To supply the memory card I/Os, the device has an integrated voltage selectable regulator and an auto-enable/disable function that connects to the VSD supply pin. The device also has built-in EMI filters and ESD protections.


  • Supports up to 208 MHz clock rate
  • Supports 1.2V to 1.8V host side interface voltage
  • Voltage translation supports SDR104, SDR50, DDR50, SDR25,
    SDR12, High-Speed and Default-Speed modes and comply SD
    3.0 specification
  • Automatic enable and disable through VSD supply pin
  • Built-in 100mA Low dropout voltage regulator to supply the voltage of memory card I/Os
  • Integrated pull-up and pull-down resistors
  • Integrated EMI filters for digital I/Os
  • On card side, supports 8 kV ESD protection(IEC 61000-4-2,
    level 4)
  • Level shifting buffers keep ESD stress away from the host
  • Totally Lead-Free & Fully RoHS Compliant
  • Halogen- and Antimony-Free. “Green” Device
  • For automotive applications requiring specific change control
