I would like to connect an I2C slave device to the CY7C68013A. The problem is that the slave device pins use 1.8v. The slave device pins are the following:
- SDA: 1.8v
- SCL: 1.8v
- INT: 1.8v (interrup control pin)
- RESET: 1.8v
I have been thinking to use a bidirectional voltage level translator ic for the 4 pins (i.e.: NXP NVT2004).
Is there are any alternative way to do it?
Is there any known problem using a bidirectional voltage level translator for this task?
If the I2C slave cannot handle 3.3 V signals, then using a level translator is a solution.
