Typographical Error on
DSCC SMD 5962-95521To: Actel Customers
Actel has discovered a typographical error contained in the Standard Microcircuit Drawing (SMD) number 5962-95521 (Actel generic part number A14100A). SMDs are controlled by the Defense Supply Center, Columbus (DSCC).
On page 18 of this specification, Table IIB. Delta Limits at +25C, the delta limit for the standby supply current (IDD), is listed as +/- 1 uA. The specification should read +/- 1 mA. This error is typographical only and has no effect on parts shipped in the past or in the future to this SMD.
During 1995, when this specification was generated, there were three devices in the ACT 3 family added as SMD devices. The other two SMDs are the 5962-95508 (A1460A) and 5962-95520 (A1425A). All three devices have the same standby IDD specification of 25mA (Table I. Electrical Performance Characteristics). Both the 5962-95508 and 5962-95520 have the correct specification for the delta limit for IDD of +/- 1 mA. Clearly, the specification of +/- 1 uA does not make sense for this specification. On many SMDs, delta limits are +/- 10% of the standard specification.
ACTION REQUIRED BY ACTEL/DSCC
In addition to this notification, Actel will send this change to DSCC to get the SMD modified. Once this is completed (expected by the end of April), customers will be able to download the new version of the SMD from http://www.dscc.dla.mil/Downloads/MilSpec/Smd/95521.pdf.
ACTION REQUIRED BY CUSTOMERS
Any customer specification which use or refer to the DSCC SMD 5962-95521 should be modified to reflect this correction.
