LM2903AVQDRQ1 negative voltage input
Part Number: LM2903-Q1
on the LM2903-Q1, there is no max input current specified.
(the non-Q100 has a max of -50mA in the data sheet)
What is the max input current for negative input voltage?
It is unfortunate that the datasheets are not the same. I believe you will find that it is more common to only have the min input voltage of -0,3V in the abs max table and no input current spec. That is because it is not possible to have -50mA for input current and not violate the -0,3V input voltage. Our team wrote an application note for this comparator family and section 2.9 addresses protecting the input against negative voltages www.ti.com/.../snoaa35.pdf. I do not have enough characterization data to provide a max input current when the input reaches -0,3V but it will be less than 50mA since the diode does not start conducting hard until after -0.4V. Figure 4 on page 7 shows a typical performance curve of input bias current vs input voltage. We can discuss offline if you need us to provide more.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.
