NXP Introduces Industry’s Lowest Power Voltage Translators

NXP Introduces Industry’s Lowest Power Voltage Translators

NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today introduced the AXP family of logic translators, designed for low-power and high-performance applications. The family of AXP translators is the lowest power voltage translator solution in the market while also offering the widest range of voltage translation from 0.7 volts to 5.5 volts. The AXP translators (AXPnT) are ideal for high performance applications with Microprocessors/Microcontrollers/SOCs operating at ultra-low voltages below 1.8 volts that still need to interface with I/O peripheral solutions typically operating at 2.5 V, 3.3 V, or even 5.5 V.

In 2014, NXP introduced the AXP family of logic devices, offering the lowest power logic functions in the industry. With today’s introduction of the AXPnT, NXP now offers solutions to interfacing Microprocessors/Microcontrollers/ASICs operating as low as 0.7 V to peripheral devices operating as high as 5.5 V.


The AXPnT includes standard buffers, as well as gates and configurable functions. They are available in both leaded and leadless package options, including NXP’s 5 and 6pin GX packages. These packages are the smallest leadless logic packages in the industry. By providing the lowest power voltage translator products, NXP Semiconductors continues to support the migration of applications to lower voltages. The result is greater power savings for battery powered applications, while at the same time facilitating the interfacing of lower-voltage ASICs, microprocessors, microcontrollers, or SOC chips with legacy higher-voltage peripheral devices in the market place.
