XU4 shifter shield Pullup/Pulldown hints

Post by qxtgo »

Hello HK

discovered a weird behavior when using a port from the shifter shield as digital output with external pulldown or load below ~5K.
Using any port (Images are from 209) with a pulldown the same: High level rings with ~ 3MHz

This begins with Pulldown < ~ 5K:

with 10K not seen :

The ringing signal:

Reading the Data Sheet of the TXS0108E
(TI, SCES642D) 8.3.5 Pull-up or Pull-down Resistors on I/O Lines
they talk about internal RpuB of ~4K, which could explain the ringing with ~4k load.

Tested with a potentiometer, the ringing starts exactly at 4.4K load.

Found an AN regarding this: http://www.ti.com/lit/an/scea054/scea054.pdf
1.3.2 Conclusion writes not to use Pullups/Downs below 50 K with TXB Devices.

Perhaps you could/should add this information to your wiki/Product page.

Really appreciate your valuable information with detail tests.
We've updated the WiKi about the 50Kohm story.
