OK to operate at the absolute max rating?
Sean Breheny email (remove spam text)
ICs typically have two max ratings for very fundamental things (like
temperature, voltage, current, etc.). Absolute max, and typical max.
Absolute max means "It may be permanently damaged if you go above this"
Typical max means "It may not work properly if you go above this, and
life may be shortened too"
Good engineering design practice is never to exceed the typical max,
since you need the device to operate correctly, not just remain
