Hello,

I'm just a hobbyist and not a professional.

I would like to know what the meaning is of
the hyphens or dashes in this datasheet and
also the commas and periods.

TIA

PJB.

Most people find these rather obvious/intuitive.

A hyphen/dash before a number means that it is negative.

A hyphen/dash that is the only thing in a box means that parameter is not supplied.

A comma separates things. So Vin (V) of "0,20" means either 0 V or 20 V. It's also used to separate a description from the symbol that represents it, such as "Input Low Voltage, V_IL Max."

A period is used either as a decimal point, such that 9.95 means 9 + 95/100, or to indicate an abbreviation, such that "Max." is an abbreviation of "Maximum".

Do you understand what a + sign or a - sign means?

Hyphen before a number means that the value is negative.
Period is the decimal place, for example, -6.8 means negative 6.8
Comma indicates the range of INPUT voltages, for example, 0,5 means LOW input voltage of 0V and HIGH input voltage of 5V.

Dash means that a value for that situation is not applicable or not available.

Do you mean only two discrete values, either 0V or 20V, or somewhere inbetween ?
