Power Dissipation in description is wrong?

For the Zener diode in the link below, the power rating in your description seems to not match the datasheet (225mW vs 250mW). Is 225mW a mistake?


Hi pauline.girouard,

Welcome to the Tech Forum.

Yes, I believe you are correct that it should be listed as 250mW rather than 225mW. I’ll send a notice to the appropriate people to get that corrected. Thank you for pointing that out so we can present correct information on our website.

You can also report website errors directly on the detail page for a part, as seen here:

As a note, it appears that the reason for the discrepancy is that older versions of the datasheet, (circa 2011), list it as 225mW, but more recent ones upped it to 250mW.
