I am working with the 74HC595 shift register, its outputs connected to several LEDs. Datasheet here: http://www.nxp.com/documents/data_sheet/74HC_HCT595.pdf
I would like to know how much current this shift register will draw for its own operation
(i.e., EXCLUDING the current drawn by LEDs/whatever is connected to it). In other words, if I have all connected Leds switched OFF, what will be the current drawn by the 74HC595 alone?
Which parameter should I look for in the datasheet? (It lists multiple Current parameters, and I am a little confused)
