I would like to know what the max current consumption of the W5500 module is so I can size an appropriate voltage regulator. When I looked into the datasheet I have found something that made me second guess.
Under the absolute maximum electrical characteristics of the datasheet
It is stated that the max current consumption of this chip is 5mA, so I assumed that that is it.
but when i scrolled down I find this
So which one is it? It is written under "Power Dissipation" given with what the absolute maximum rating say, I can only surmise that that current is coming from somewhere else
