TPD4S014: TPD4S014 failure mode when OV

Part Number: TPD4S014

Hi,

In evaluating the TPD4S014 EVM, the primary thing we were looking for was how it would fail at voltages beyond its absolute max.

 

The part blew up at about 50 V and failed open. Can you tell us if this part will commonly (perhaps always) fail open when the absolute max voltage on the input is exceeded?

 

Thanks,

Sal

  • Sal,

    We cannot guarantee how the part will fail when it is subjected to conditions beyond it's ABSMAX.

    It can just as easily fail to a short as an open.
