True Power converter's (AD8361) operating temperature range from minus40C to
   But storage temperature of this device range from -65C to +150C.
   Can this IC work at the temperature -50C? Or it will be destroyed or will
work with a too large error?


The AD8361 is only tested and guaranteed down to –40degC. The part may operate
at lower temperatures but performance is not characterized and not guaranteed.
The part will not be damaged by operating at –50degC but mechanical damage to
the package may result if the part is exposed to thermal shock (fast
temperature changes) outside the datasheet limits.
