Operation of this device beyond any one of these limits may cause permanent dam-
age. For reliable continuous operation, the device voltage and current must not
exceed the maximum operating values specified in the table on page one.
Bias Conditions should also satisfy the following expression:
Ca u t io n! ESD sensitive de vice.
Exceeding any one or a combination of the Absolute Maximum Rating conditions may
cause permanent damage to the device. Extended application of Absolute Maximum
Rating conditions to the device may reduce device reliability. Specified typical
performance or functional operation of the device under Absolute Maximum Rating
conditions is not implied.
