LM293A: Worst Case Output Saturation Voltage Curve

Part Number: LM293A
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: LM193, LM393, LM293

Dear Specialists,

My customer is considering LM293A and has a request.

I would be grateful if you could advise.


Datasheet P.11 Figure 6-3 shows the output characteristics when the LM293A output is at L level. As the current draws in, the saturation voltage increases, and the output voltage jumps when it exceeds 10mA. Perhaps this characteristic is a typical value.

On the other hand, the data sheet P.8 6.10 Electrical Characteristics for LM193, LM293, and LM393 (without A suffix) specifies the IOL Low-level output current at 6mAmin.

Due to product deviation, when the output drive capability is low(6mA min), the slope change point circled attached graph will shift to the left?

Is it correct this understanding? 

Could you please provide the data below.
(1) Could you give me a graph of the worst value (IOL 6mA)?
(2) If possible, I would like the data to be driven by the comparator supply voltage of 5V.


I appreciate your great help in advance.

Best  regards,
