Using a CBT Device as a 5V-to-3.3V Level Shifter or Voltage Translator
The CBT logic family can interface a 5V part of a system with a 3.3V part of a system by adding a diode between the external Vcc and the output-enable terminals.
Please reference application report "Flexible Voltage-Level Translation with CBT Family Devices": http://www.ti.com/lit/scda006 .
Is it possible to convert 3.3 V CMOS to 5V CMOS using SN74CB3T3245 and pull up resistors?
Yes this will work. see appnote page 28. http://focus.ti.com/lit/an/scda008/scda008.pdf
Can I connect I2C I/F (with pull-ups to 5V) to the SN74CB3T3245?
You can use SN74CB3T3245 only for 5V-3.3V, 5V,3.3V-2.5V translation. I prefer to use PCA9306 for I2C- it is more flexible.
