Regarding LT1763 absolute maximum voltage rating..


I have a situation in a circuit that for a time period of approximately lessthan 10msec linear regulator input pin of LT1763 is subjected to 25V peak or greater than 20V which is greater than its absolute maximum.

But linear regulator is not failed even when subjected to above condition for several instances. Is it rated for withstanding above condition? Or it is just pure luck that it didn't damage?

Can I know how far and how much time LT1763 can take a voltage above 20V positive max rail voltage?

Quick response is appreciated..
