Part Number: ISO5452
Customer wants to verify with us "Clamp pin:" internally connects to GND2 or VEE2?
Correct me if I am wrong. My understanding is VEE2.
If VEE2 is supply by -5V. Clamp pin should be triggered when incoming voltage reaches -5V + 2.1V = -2.9V typ.
Thanks for verifying.

Thanks for the feedback! -)
Quick question regarding CLAMP under bipolar supplies. When you say CLAMP pin "not active", does it mean CLAMP pin can auto detect bipolar supplies therefore turn off by itself?
Customer is asking for CLAMP truth-table like ROHM did. Do we have something similar to share with customer?
In reply to [FAE] Andrew Wang:
Your understanding of the Miller clamp function is correct. The Miller clamp threshold value is with reference to VEE2. The truth-table of ISO5452 is similar to the one you have shared. Let us know of any further questions.
