MAX3232E-Q1: Is MAX3232E-Q1 operable at Ta =95℃?

Guru 18760 points

Part Number: MAX3232E-Q1

Hi Team,

I have two qestions as the following.

The datasheet shows "Operating virtual junction temperature" is 150℃(MAX).
What does "Operating virtual" mean?

Is MAX3232E-Q1 operable at Ta =95℃?
I heard it is possible case that Ta(ambient temperature) increases up to 95℃ for my customer's automotive application.

I understood max and min of ELECTRICAL CHARACTERISTICS show under –40 to 85℃ condition, however I would like to confirm above.
Your support would be appreciated.

Best Regards,
