  • Voltage level shifting between 5v and 3v devices

    It’s not difficult these days to end up with a design where several of the major components all have different operating voltage requirements. A typical example may be a PIC running at 5v for performance reasons, most LCD modules also need 5v, but Microchip’s new Serial SRAMs require 3.6v and here’s the problem; connecting these Serial…
