What happens if i use your HMC641ALP4E at -55°C ? I suppose that nothing
happens because the storage range is -65°C and the power dissipation is near to
null: isn't it?

 

The storage temperature defines the temperature range that the device can be
stored for longer period of time when powered off. The AMR for HMC641ALP4E is
-65C to +150C.
The operating temperature defines the temperature range that one can safely
operate the device. The AMR for HMC641ALP4E is -40C to +85C.

The HMC641ALP4E was product characterized on the electrical and RF performances
between -40C and +85C. The device will still operate at -55C but the
performances may change or degrade between operating at -40C and -55C. We have
not evaluated the performances at -55C, and would recommend the customer to
fully evaluate the performances if they intend to operate below -40C.
