Would problems occur if the input V were exceed to maximum rate?

Latest Updated:08/01/2007


If the input voltage were to exceed the absolute maximum rating even momentarily, would not any problems occur?


Reliability cannot be guaranteed and the device may be destroyed.
Renesas Electronics designs devices including their withstanding voltage, in order to guarantee input voltage ratings, including long-term reliability, but if the input voltage may exceed the absolute maximum rating, be sure to provide an external protection circuit.
