Latest Updated:04/01/2008


Why "5 mA (MAX.)" is rated for the holding current in "Electrical Specifications"?
I guess the minimum current value should be rated.


The holding current of 5 mA (MAX) is the rated value of Renesas Electronics and means that the product has a characteristic of the 5 mA or less holding current.
When the product is viewed from the user, the ON state can be accurately held if a holding current of 5 mA or more, higher than the value shown in the catalog, is flown.
