One of my customers is considering using AMC1311 for their new products.
At this moment, they have the following question.
Could you please give me your reply?
Q. In their system, AMC1311 "IN" terminal is applied 1.5V~2V prior to VDD1 powering up.
AMC1311 datasheet says at 8.3.1 Analog input section that if the input voltage VIN exceeds the range specified
in the Absolute Maximum Ratings table, the input current must be limited to the absolute maximum value
because the electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection turns on.
In this case, can AMC1311 device damage and latch up be avoided if the input current of "IN" terminal is limited less than +/-10mA?
Your reply would be much appreciated.
