Name Type Mult. Description Owning Classifier
identification String 1

Specifies a unique identification of the specification. The identification is guaranteed to be unique within the document containing the specification. For all VEC-documents a Specification-instance can be trusted to be identical if the DocumentVersion-instance is the same (see DocumentVersion) and the identification of the Specification is the same.

description AbstractLocalizedString 0..*

Specifies additional, human readable information about the specification.

specialPartType String 0..1

The specialPartType allows the specification of subclassifications for a PartOrUsageRelatedSpecification (e.g. different types of connector housings).

powerConsumption PowerConsumption 0..*

Specifies the PowerConsumptions of this EEComponentSpecification. This refers to the internal power consumption of this E/E-component, not the power-consumption that might occur indirectly over other E/E-components that are supplied through this component.

thresholdVoltage NumericalValue 0..1

Voltage at which the diode starts conducting in forward direction.

breakDownVoltage NumericalValue 0..1

Voltage at which the diode starts conducting in reverse direction.

iMax NumericalValue 0..1

Specifies the maximum electric current tolerated by the diode.
