We are using a MSP430FR5989-EP, part number M430FR5989SRGCREP, and we need to run at 100ºC.
While taking a look at the datasheet the operating temperature it's not clear. What's the actual value?
The datasheet contains a detail of the nomenclature for parts, from the part number (M430FR5989SRGCREP) would have temperature range S, for which the operating temperature would range from -40°C to 50°C. On the other hand, on the lower part of the chart, it says that for ‘–EP’ parts, the temperature range is -40°C to 105°C.
To make it worse on the Packaging Information section there is a chart that has a summary of some parts characteristics. From this chart, the operating temperature range is -55°C to 95°C.
Can anyone please help us understand which is the actual operating temperature range?
What can happen to a part if it's used at 100º if it's outside its range? Will it become less reliable?
Any help to clarify this is welcome.
