LMV118: Split Rail Supply

Part Number: LMV118


Good Day.

In section 7.4.2 of the LMV118 datasheet, it states "The SD pin is active high and needs to be tied to V- for normal operation . . . and a resistor to V- (<= 20Kohm) results in normal operation."

Customer's circuit is using split rail power +-3.3V with SD pin tied to ground.  It appears to function correctly and it doesn't shutdown.  Is it acceptable to tie SD pin to ground to keep the LMV118 "on" when powered from split rail supply?

Please advise. Thank you very much.

Best Regards,

Ray Vincent
