OPT3006: Operating Voltage Range

Part Number: OPT3006

In the datasheet, the recommended operating voltage max is Vdd = 3.6V, but the absolute max is about 6V. Is there a restriction to operate this at 5V? If operating at 5V, what are the drawbacks compared to 3.3V?

  • Hi Sanel,

    The absolute max ratings are stress ratings and don't imply any functional operation of the device beyond the 1.6-3.3V rating in the recommended operating conditions. So the device may not work at 5V.

    Thank you,
