## Difference between Junciton, Storage and lead Temperature

Not applicable
Hello,
I am using a MOSFET in extreme conditions.
So I should be aware of the temperature.
I want to know about the difference between Junction, Storage and Lead Temperature.
Can someone help me ?

Thanks in advance!

## Re: Difference between Junciton, Storage and lead Temperature

Not applicable
Junction temperature: The maximum temperature of the junction (silicon)
inside the package is 150 °C. For safe device operation, the allowable maximum
TJ must never be exceeded.

Storage temperature: The temperature, at which the device may be safely
stored, when not being used, is 150 °C (maximum), and – 55 °C (minimum).
These limits must never be exceeded.

Lead temperature (soldering, 10 seconds): The maximum temperature the
device may be safely subjected to during soldering, is 300 °C for up to 10 s.
