From opamp AD8036 I would like to know what happens when the clamping voltage
vh exceeds 3.9v, Say vh is set to 5v .


The absolute limitation on Vh and Vl are the supply voltages i.e. +/-5V if the
amplifier is running on +/-5V.

There is an relative additional limitation wrt Vin. |Vh - Vin| < 6.3V. That
means that if you set Vh at 5V then you must be sure that Vin never drops below

If you exceed this limit then we will not guarantee that the device won't be
