Part Number: LM393


I have parts from both the Aguascalientes and Malaysia assembly site and each part has a different lead-frame design.

Will this affect the parts functionally? 

  • Hi Dorian,

    have you bought both from an authorized TI's distributor?


  • Hello Dorian,

    Different assembly sites can have different build materials, depending on their capabilities.

    I can confirm that the leadframes are different between the Malaysia and Mexico sites, and that the X-rays resemble the leadframe drawings.

    Everything is the same except the leadframe - same die, mold compound, die attach, bond wires and plating.

    So, essentially, they are identical and will perform the same.
