I've got an IC that requires 3.3V Vdd and 550uA.
My supply is at 5V.
I'm reading all over the internet that powering it via a voltage divider is not advised and I should get a voltage regulator/buck converter.
Nowhere did I find anything about a dropping resistor. Using this calculator I've calculated that a 3400 ohm resistor would create the required 1.7V drop and limit the current to the appropriate value.
I'm just here for a word of comfort, is my logic correct?
