Other Parts Discussed in Thread: SN74LVC1G97-Q1
I'm using a bunch of Q100 LVC family logic devices to implement some failure mode logic in a safety critical application. All of the other devices I've designed in are operating off a 5V rail and this is within the recommended operating conditions in the datasheet for these parts. However, the quad NAND device in the LVC family is only recommended to operate up to 3.6V supply voltage.
- Is this a mistake in the datasheet?
- OR Is there something in the implementation of the gates that limits operational voltage to something less than what the process could normally handle?
- OR Was it just not a business priority to characterize this particular part at 5V?
