Hello everyone. I’m analyzing more the circuitry behind the mangOH systems. Could anyone explain to me better why there is a level shifter on the Talon CAN IoT CARD? The motivation that I gave myself is the following: from the datasheet you can see that the output voltage of the mangOH goes from 4.5 V to 17 V (really 17 V ?!)
while the Talon module accepts input voltages between 1.8 V and 3.3 V.
Is it fair to say that the level shifter is used to adapt the voltages on both sides to each other? Also I saw that the level shifter is enabled on GPIO 13: why is it done sometimes yes and sometimes not? Thanks to anyone who wants to help me, regards
