The LVCH16543A 16-bit registered transceiver is built using advanced dual metal CMOS technology. The LVCH16543A can be used as two 8-bit transceivers or one 16-bit transceiver. Separate latch-enable (LEAB or LEBA) and output-enable (OEAB or OEBA) inputs are provided for each register to permit independent control in either direction of data flow. The A-to-B enable (CEAB) input must be low in order to enter data from the A port or to output data from the B port. LEAB controls the latch function. When LEAB is low, the A to B latches are transparent. A subsequent low-to-high transition of LEAB puts the A latches in the storage mode. OEAB performs output enable function on the B port. Data flow from the B port to the A port is similar but requires using CEBA, LEBA, and OEBA inputs. Flow-through organization of signal pins simplifies layout. All inputs are designed with hysteresis for improved noise margin. All pins of this 16-bit registered transceiver can be driven from either 3.3V or 5V devices. This feature allows the use of this device as a translator in a mixed 3.3V/5V supply system. The LVCH16543A has been designed with a ±24mA output driver. This driver is capable of driving a moderate to heavy load while maintaining speed performance. The LVCH16543A has "bus-hold" which retains the inputs’ last state whenever the input goes to a high impedance. This prevents floating inputs and eliminates the need for pull-up/down resistors.
