I'm using the Raspberry PI to communicate with various sensors and other circuits that input and output 5V logic level. The Raspberry Pi itself has 3.3V GPIOs, so i need to convert the logic levels.
I found the following chip, with this capability: http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/1635559.pdf
I'm quite new to hardware development and would like to know if I have to purchase any other components to use this chip. The datasheet mentions pull-up resistors for instance.
I also found this ready to go chip that I think uses the same component. I can see various other components on it, but I would like to use the breadboard version :
Can anyone provide me with a circuit to hook up the SN74LVC245AN safely and effectively on a breadboard.
