Zolatron 64: More adventures in level shifting

In a previous post, I detailed how I’m having to shift voltage levels on signals running between a 65C22 VIA chip and the GPIO pins of a Raspberry Pi. The solution I settled on was to go for simple voltage dividers using pairs of resistors. And that’s been working fine. I mean, you’d expect it to work with the 5V… Read more »

SmartParallel: serial shifter issues

I was pretty pleased with my serial level shifting board – right up to the point where I tried to use it. The tl;dr version of this post is that the board works, but not well enough. It has severe limitations that, I think, make it useless for the intended purpose. Let me explain… Voltage levels The purpose of the… Read more »
