What values represent the actual power that exceed electrical range?

Latest Updated:04/01/2008

Question:

I need to use a product at values that exceed the rated electrical specification range (AC, DC characteristics). Please tell me what values represent the actual power of the product.

Answer:

We cannot provide you with this information. If a product exceeds the rated electrical specification range, its operation is not guaranteed.
The characteristics of individual semiconductor devices differ depending on manufacturing deviations, so the shipment test merely confirms that the characteristics of the product fall within the guaranteed range.
Note that exceeding this range even slightly may seriously damage or destroy your product. It is therefore vital that you use your product within the rated electrical specification range.
