(This is a follow-up to an earlier question of mine.)
I would like to use the GTL2000 bi-directional translator IC to facilitate level translation between a 3.3V circuit and a 5V circuit (including bi-directional Digital and Analog I/O, SPI, I2C lines, etc.)
Now the datasheet of the GTL2000 convinces me that this is the right IC for the job. However, at certain points, the datasheet describes the GTL2000 as a "low voltage translator" and that it does "voltage level translation".
So before I order the part, I am trying to understand what this means -- What is the difference between a voltage-level translator versus a logic-level translator? Can I use this IC in the application I stated above?
