I have a 3.3V SPI flash programmer that I would like to use to flash a 1.8V SPI flash chip.
I have read that I could use a logic level converter to do this but I can't find wiring diagrams.

There is a good article here "How do I write to SPI flash memory?" on how to flash SPI but I can't seem to find any good article on how to wire a Logic Level Converter like "https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12009" to convert 3.3V to 1.8V to flash a 1.8V SPI chip with a 3.3V programmer.

  • \$\begingroup\$ The hookup guide talks about 5V to 3.3V conversion so I was not sure if I need to add another resistor or a DC converter to bring the 3.3V down to 1.8V. \$\endgroup\$ – goroth Sep 9 '15 at 16:24

Well my understanding of the logic level converter was wrong.
I had thought it could also convert voltage but that is not correct.
I need to supply 2 different voltages. A 3.3V on one side and a 1.8V on the other side.

Anyway, I found a link that contained the wiring I needed.
Here is a pic from the link.
