The outputs to this device have both positive and
negative clamping diodes, and the inputs to this device have negative clamping diodes only
as depicted in Figure 9-1.
CAUTION: Voltages beyond the values
specified in the Absolute Maximum Ratings table can cause damage to the device. The
input and output voltage ratings may be exceeded if the input and output clamp-current
ratings are observed.
