Topic: serial data voltage divider (Read 609 times) previous topic - next topic



for my project I need to go from 5V arduino RX/TX to 3.3V RX/TX from a bluegiga module. A very common problem and one that I usually solve with a level shifter. However at the moment I don't have one lying around and I was wondering if I could use a simple voltage divider instead. It would probably work at low baudrates, but would it still work reliably at higer baudrates?


Got Zener?

I will never ask you to do anything that I wouldn't do myself.


Hmmm, I probably have some leftovers, good idea (and if not they are easy to find). I don't need bidirectional anyway, I'm only planning on using UART.

Thanks for idea!

I guess it would lead to less noise than a simple voltage divider.


I asked this question a few days ago here, take a look - I got some good info.
