Part Number: LSF0204

Hi Sir,

Here is the waveform from LSF0204 which measurement from 1.8V side I/O.

Net name:



We found the mater driving too strong, and already tuning the pull up resistor value as 91 ohm, but still can see this waveform,

DO you have any idea how to tuning the pull up resistor value to fix it?


  • Hi Anne,

    Can you provide a schematic of your LSF device? Your issue is that the device has over shoot because of a strong pullup? Can you increase your pullup resistance?

    What voltages is the LSF being used to translate?

    Your removed the frequency of operation and voltage from your scope shot, I would like to know this.

    Hi Karan,

    I am asking if customer can provide the schematic or scope shot with frequency but didn't have feedback yet.

    and it is for 1.8V to 3.3V translate in LSF0204.

    Hi Anne,

    A faster dv/dt will result in overshoot like this. Since the pull-ups determine this slew rate, then using larger resistors to reduce that slew should help. 1k is overkill for most I2C speeds.
