Both the MCU and the circuit are powered by a 5v power supply, when PAD_PWM and PAD_PWM_return are not shorted ore there is no load between them the circuit its Drawing 6.22 mA which is correct. But when i short PAD_PWM and PAD_PWM_return with a wire i see a voltage drop from 5V to around 0.5V and the total current consumption of 18.88 mA. the duty cycle of the PWM its 50% so in theory the difference in current I'm seeing its correct as 5*.5 its 2.5V/ 200 ohm its 12.5 mA which its almost the current difference that we got from working under no load and working under load.
But i cant know for sure if that increase in 12mA its in fact going through the R10 and the wire. because I'm seeing a voltage drop, it doesn't make sense to me.
The MCU works flawlessly and it doesn't stutter or anything at all.
