Datasheet says you can't put a voltage lower than VSS on any pin: This is because there are reverse biased diodes between the most pins and VDD and VSS. If you apply a negative voltage the diode to VSS becomes forward biased and current will flow. The forward drop of the diode before it turns on to conduct is about -0.6 V. Applying a voltage more negative ...
