Never assume IC manufactures are consistent in chip family design. Always read the datasheet...but datasheets could be wrong too.

"The Manufacturer's Datasheet" 
By Raj Desai
:(


Before prototyping and designing a circuit...

"A good electronics engineer will find/read a component's manufacture's datasheet... 

 A great electronics engineer will find/read a component's manufacture's datasheet with skepticism.. 

AND I will find/read the manufacture's datasheet and
 actually test the component 
before believing anything i saw in the datasheet 
after 
I called the manufacturer's tech help line...
and see what they say.."

Raj Desai
(you wouldn't believe the things the IC manufacture's say about their own datasheet...)

"oh.. that datasheet...well it's wrong..."
(sad face):

Story of The Missing Resistor





Never assume anything about datasheets or chip manufacturers...
