The LSF family of bi-directional voltage level translators from Texas
Instruments (TI) operate from 0.8V to 4.5V (Vref_A) and 1.8V to 5.5V
(Vref_B). This allows bi-directional voltage translations between 0.8V and
5V without the need for a direction terminal in open-drain or push-pull
applications.

The devices support level translation applications with transmission speeds
greater than 100 MHz for open-drain systems utilizing a 15pF capacitance and
165ohm pull-up resistor.

The device allows a seamless translation between higher and lower voltages
selected by the user without the need for directional control.
