Explanation of 1727-2062-2-ND / 74HCT4538D,118 as package & Packaging version

let me try to explain to our customers that the signification of 118, in the requested part number 1727-2062-2-ND / 74HCT4538D,118 is really not listed in the Data Sheet but the meaning is:

11 for their latest internal package version: SOT109-1

8 for the full Standard Packaging: 2500 per Tape & Reel

P.S.: Nexperia was carved out from NXP Semiconductors and the original specification
goes even further back to Philips Semiconductors and is fully backward compatible.
