Part Number: SN6501

hi team,

I see that the datasheet of SN6501 recommands supply voltage to be 3.3V or 5V. Does it a typical value that we must use or it can work properly among the supply range between 3.3V and 5V, ie. 4V?

  • Hi Kelly,

    The VCC supply voltage of SN6501 can be anywhere in between 3V and 5.5V and device is expected to work fine. The device characterization data provided in datasheet is primarily taken at 3.3V or 5V or both only, hence, the solution with VCC voltage other than 3.3V or 5V may see a performance which may or may not match the ones provided in datasheet, e.g., efficiency. Apart from this, we do not see any other concerns in using SN6501 with supply voltages other 3.3V & 5V. Thanks.
