This get more and more off-topic for the ALSA community, but ...

For the signals, use a voltage shifter, something like the 74LVC2T45.
For Vdd, if you have to provide that to the board, use a proper
switching power regulator with low ripple, or an LDO, and care well for

Also check whether the voltages you applied all the time could have
damaged the chip permanently.
