Defective P/S chips STV1601A



I have run into a chronic failure on a certain run of digital parallel 
to serial converters.  

The chip is STV1601A     and the date code on the chip is S2C1.

I have had a 100% failure rate on this run of chips (have had 4 
separate failures) within 18 months of manufacture.

Failures range from serial stream flatline, to partial failures (like 
SAV) to intermittant operation.

Again, we have had 100% failure on this paticular date code (S2C1) of 
chips.
