Overdriving an IC's input can also cause timing specs
to be violated. I have seen situations where a memory chip's
access time increased significantly when the address inputs were
allowed to overshoot. (I think they were overshooting on H-L, so
they were going below Vss) The memory chips were never damaged,
but apparently they took a while to recover from the "bad"
input signal.
