I've been working on a small project inspired by this question that uses a CMOS 555 timer as a power button controller (short press to turn on, 3s hold to turn off), the goal being to design a micropower circuit that can operate across a wide supply range. To do this, I use a CMOS 555 as a latching window comparator, and have separate RC networks connected to the THRES and TRIG inputs, as shown in the schematic.
While researching different CMOS 555 timer options, I found the datasheet for the TLC555 has the following disclaimer about the quiescent current:
These values apply for the expected operating configurations in which THRES is connected directly to DISCH or to TRIG.
Does this imply that the TLC555 will draw an excessive amount of quiescent current if THRES is not connected directly to DISCH or TRIG? If so, why would this be the case? Note that in the "idle" state TRIG will be close to the supply voltage and THRES will be close to ground.
