Storage Temperature

Storage Temperature is the temperature at which the device can be safely stored when unpowered.


A device can be kept in a storage for a temperature range -65 °C to +150 °C and yet still function as it should when used in a circuit.

Storage Temperature can be found on component’s Datasheet (Absolute Maximum Ratings table).
