From the datasheet Page no 3:

1.0 ELECTRICAL CHARACTERISTICS

Input Voltage ...................... VDD+ 0.3V to GND – 5.0V

So I believe it can take GND - 5.0V ie 5v less than ground voltage. So -1v should be fine.

thanks, but on the first page it seems to suggest that -5v thing is just for transients?

It says it is not recommended to work at the absolute max and min, but you are no where near to the absolute minimum, so it should be fine!


Also at the first page it clearly mentioned as a feature Input Will Withstand Negative Inputs Up to 5V
