- For the reset circuit: We did not see any failure on the reset pin on the US and the customer should follow our recommendations present on the datasheet.

The "reset circuit" design, as shown in the data books, does not provide a series 1K0 resistor from the RESET pin to the RC junction. Consequently, there is unlimited instantaneous current from flow from the Capacitor to the RESET pin. This may cause silicon failures over time, especially if the current flows through the substrate catch diodes. Most likely this is the cause of the failures you have observed.
