Other Parts Discussed in Thread: LM317
Earlier one of the engineers I am working with asked a question regarding light sensitivity concerns on the LM317L-N.
Specifically, they noted that we used to have a section in the datasheet that highlighted the concern that exposing the package to bright sunlight may cause a drop in Vref. Attached are screenshots of the old datasheets. Now, the datasheet on TI.com does not have this comment, so I wanted to understand if this concern is still valid?
Since it was removed from the datasheet, does that mean that the engineer does not need to take this into consideration and we implemented something new in our process to address this?
Any feedback or help on this would be appreciated.
