The LTC4316/LTC4317/LTC4318 family of I²C/SMBus address translators enable multiple slaves with identical addresses, such as temperature sensors, to individually communicate with the master without conflicts. The LTC4316-18 are transparent devices that replace I²C Muxes and switches. The LTC4316/LTC4317/LTC4318 do not require any software programming or ENABLE control lines, allowing masters to make direct calls to slaves using unique translated addresses that are configured by external resistors. The LTC4316 single (1 input/1 output) is available in 10-lead 3mm x 3mm DFN and 10-lead MSOP packages. The LTC4317 “Y” configuration (1 input/2 outputs) is available in a 16-lead 5mm x 3mm DFN package. The LTC4318 dual (2 inputs/2 outputs) is available in a 20-lead 4mm x 4mm QFN package. Offered over the commercial and industrial temperature ranges, pricing for the LTC4316, LTC4317 and LTC4318, starts at $1.45, $1.75 and $1.95 each, respectively, for 1000-piece quantities.
