What does latch-up-proof architecture mean in UPD5200, 5201 and 5205?

Latest Updated:09/01/2007


In the UPD5200, 5201, and 5205's datasheets, what does "latch-up-proof architecture" mean? Does it mean that the architecture does not cause latch-up?


Since it is CMOS architecture, it could, in principle, cause latch-up.
"Latch-up-proof" does not mean that latch-up is prevented, but latch-up does not occur easily (that is, latch-up tolerance is improved compared to existing architecture).
