I've recently order a Beagleboard-xM. While I'm waiting for it to be shipped out(its on backorder for a couple of weeks) I'm trying to find level shifter to work with it. The Beagleboard runs at 1.8V and I need to interface it with my AVRs using I2C running at 5V and a GPS use UART running at 3.3V. I have looked but the only ones I can find have funky packages that I don't want to solder. So, I was wondering if anyone knows of any good level shifters with DIP packages that I might be able to use?
p.s. I also don't mind making my own level shifter from scratch if anyone has a circuit that could work.
Sorry if there are spelling errors or the question sound a bit spoon feedy; I'm posting this at 3:34 am.
