I'm having a small gap in understanding with a project I'm working on. The project is reliability related and requires looking at the absolute maximum values for some 54ALS family logic (Max Vcc, junction temp, Output Current, Power Dissipation) and doing some derating calculations on those values.
Just as a basic test to see if I can accurately find these values, I pulled up the datasheet for the 54ALS08 from TI. The only real absolute max I was able to pull from this was Max Vcc is 7V.
Digging a little deeper, TI's website referenced a standard military datasheet for the component: 5962-86842. That one helped a little more giving me:
Max power dissipation, per device: 22mW Junction Temp: 175C.
Cool! I'm getting close. How the heck do I determine the maximum output current though? I know for logic-low I don't want to be going over 4mA it's going to impact the logic function of other gates down the line. But, I'm more interested in the current source/sink that's going to damage the IC. Searching around I found a similar post asking about this that referenced 74HC08 (HC logic family version of this). That datasheet seemed more straight forward. Icc under Table 4 (absolute maximum values) is 50mA.
Last things, "max power dissipation, per device". I'm assuming this means that for this particular IC (quad gate) I shouldn't exceed 88mW for the entire chip in addition to 22mW from each individual gate?
