I have a following issue, which I didn't see in IC books: I would like to know if it is possible to send analog signals (sin waves) between two power domains in an integrated circuit. The issue looks as follows:
I have never had a problem with sending digital signals between two different power domains as it is done through level shifters / level converters. However, I never thought about sending analog signals between two power domains. Is it done using protection diodes as below?
Of course, signal send from 3.3 V domain is limited to 2.5 V. This sinusoidal 3.3 Vpp emphasizes that signal is send from 3.3 V domain to 2.5 V domain and that maximum signal that can appear on the line is 3.3 Vpp.
