Vgss specifications for short pulses for FET PSMN8R3-40YS

The datasheet includes a maximum specification of +/-20V for Vgss.  Some manufacturers also include a specification for Vgss for short duration pulses.  For example, Diodes Inc BSS138 also has Vgss +/-20V, but can withstand +/-40V < 50 uS.


Does NXP have any additional data that shows if the gate is vulnerable to damage or not for short duration pulses (~1 uS) > 20V?
