I have an LDO with output specification of 1.8V and 0.45A of load current.
Input voltage is 3.3V. To find out the input current, is my below calculation correct?
Input Current = (1.8V * 0.45A) / 3.3V = 0.245A. Am I correct?
But the LDO just has a pass through element inside it right? It can't be 0.245A as the input current? What mistake am I making here?
I tried to search and found this link. The answers mention about ground pin current. Can someone also explain me what is ground pin current and how we need to consider it in the calculation?
