We're considering using the TPS7A7200QRGWREP in place of the TPS7A7200RGWT due to supply constraints. Whilst the two part are identical in almost all facets the only significant difference I see is the Minimum Junction and storage temperature. TPS7A7200QRGWREP has a Junction temperature range of -40°C toe 150°C compared to the TPS7A7200RGWT, which has a junction temperature range of -55°C to 160°C.
- What is the difference between Operating virtual junction temperature and operating temperature?
- Does this have any effects on how the devices are operated?
- If the operating temperature for the two regulators is the same why is the storage and operating temperature defined in the Absolute Maximum Rating table of the datasheet different?
