Difference in Maximum and Typical Standby Currents

Question: Why is there a huge difference between the maximum standby current and the typical standby current.

 

Answer:

The SRAM's are designed to operate with less current in standby mode, however, in extreme conditions, the maximum standby current is consumed. These extreme conditions include maximum Vcc, high temperature and fast process corner. We specify the worst case conditions for measuring the maximum value of standby current
