[ADGM1304] Avoiding MEMS switch damage


Apart from the precautions mentioned in the data sheet, is there any other electrical precautions we need to take care. Since, I have problems in some of the SP4T's individual switches getting damaged. I am using MEMS switches for making a switched capacitor network and the switches undergo hot switching (i.e. voltage between Drain & Source exists when the switch turn on or turn-off). The worst-case voltages between Drain & Source during such hot-switching is ~ 3 V.

Particularly I would like to know, if there are any thing I can follow, so as to avoid such damages to the beams. Apart from this, should we enable/disable the IC using sleep pin only when all INx pins are low.
