Stressing the device above the rating listed in the absolute maximum ratings table may
cause permanent damage to the device. Exposure to absolute maximum rating conditions
for extended periods may affect device reliability. These are stress ratings only and
operation of the device at these or any other conditions above those indicated in the
Operating sections of this specification is not implied. Refer also to the Numonyx SURE
Program and other relevant quality documents.
Table 8. Absolute maximum ratings
Temperature under Bias
Input or Output voltage (1)(2)
–0.6 VCC +0.6 V
1. Minimum voltage may undershoot to –2V during transition and for less than 20ns during transitions.
2. Maximum voltage may overshoot to VCC +2V during transition and for less than 20ns during transitions.
3. VPP must not remain at 12V for more than a total of 80hrs.
