For anything to do with muxing ie general purpose pu/ pd plus pp/od plus
10/20/30/40mA all as options all needed along with speed filters. Level
shifting builtin also really needed. Same pins get used for i2c spi sdmmc
rgb/ttl some of those are 9600 baud some as high as 125mhz esp RGMII.

Level shifting needed because core IO voltage may be 0.7 on 22nm or 1.1 1.2
on 45nm or 1.8v on 180nm and IOpad anywhere from 1.2-1.8v on mobile systems
right the way to 1.8-3.3v for 180nm.  Typically level shifting is in those
2 ranges, v rare to see 1.2v all way to 3.3v
