Hello

    I'm a starter on using AD5142 and notice the maximum current of Ia Iw Ib is just 6mA, does that mean if I connect W to Vdd and A to GND, then program code to reduce Rwa, the chip will get permanent damaged?(Vdd=5V, single power supply, Vss=GND)

   if so, the current is quite little for the application to replace a mechanical varistor.
