After Burner is it a Logic Level Converter?
« on: February 07, 2018, 11:39:01 AM »
Thinking about a new project and was wondering if the after burner is a logic level converter 3.3v to 5v? If it is this would be perfect for a project I'm thinking of!

Assuming you're talking about "Afterburner" that I made for Falcon F16, then no, Afterburner is not explicitly a logic level converter.  It's a signal booster / clarifier / conditioner for the data line.

Could it be used as a logic level converter?  Well, possibly...sort of.  When the input voltage exceeds ~1.8V, the output would switch 'high' and  send 'Vdd' to the output pin.  If the input falls below ~1.3V, the output would switch 'low', grounding the output pin.  ...push-pull driving at its finest!

So Afterburner could be a " > 1.8V/<1.3V to Vdd logic converter".   That range does encompass the typical 3.3Vin > 5.0Vout logic conversion.  So Afterburner could function in that regard.  If you are looking for 5.0Vin > 3.3Vout, then that would be outside the operating parameters of Afterburner.
