Suppose I have an IC where I connect a series resistor with Vcc and '+Vcc' supply pin of IC. Refer to the schematic above.
Say the IC current consumption is in uA or few mA for a supply voltage of 3V, resistor value 10E/100E/1000E.
- What effect does the resistor have on the operation?
- Will it limit the current enough to cause malfunction in IC?
- Will the voltage reaching the IC-pin get divided as the resistor and IC are forming a voltage divider?
Electronics engineer here, you can get technical.
