The Sparkfun "shifters" that I directed you to will do that. They'll actually do pretty much any voltage combo you like -- they're sourced from each drive side with a clever transistor array setup.

So, you can do:

- 12vdc serial to 5vdc
- 5vdc to to 3.3vdc
- 3.3vdc to 1.8vdc

Pretty much any esoteric combination in between.

If you know what you're doing, just the transistor array.

Hi Dave
Can you recommend any voltage level converters?
It depends on what you're trying to do.
the gum needs to talk to another device that talks 0-5v TTL.

Ive a couple of 3v TTL <-> RS232 and 5v TTL <-> RS232 chips i can connect but that is gonna be a lot of components for little bang. Seems this might be common enough problem that people have created a dedicated chip for it.
