Hello ... Does anybody know if the inputs (with deactivated pullups ! ) are compatible with the output levels of a 3.3 V device (powered through an appropriate voltage regulator), or if I should insert some HCT gates to adapt ? Thanks for any answer ...

This topic has a solution.

The input should work at 3.3V (over half way) however things are turned on part ways so current drain may increase.

 

The datasheet shows 0.6 of VCC as a valid high input or 3V.

Thanks for the answer ... 0.6 * 5 V = 3 V, I think this a little bit near to the limit ... So I will add some HCT gates, powered with 5 V, or a "level converter".

Doesn't all this depend on the Vcc level of your AVR device?

 

What does your datasheet say about input levels?  Are there differences in the datasheet between AT90S8515 and ATmega8515?  [I seem to recall some devices with 0.7V

 

Where did you get a quantity of AT90S devices in 2022?

 

To js:  How does an AVR input turn on part way?  Aren't there Schmitt triggers on all generations?  Isn't the CMOS-latchup situation at 1/2V?
