Topic: Current consumption of any module when EN pin is held low (Read 499 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi guys I wonder we have so many modules that have enable pins that can be held low in order to switch off the module. So what will be the current consumption of the module since it is connected to vcc and gnd.

Take an example of esp32, it has enable pin which if held low, can switch the device off but what about the current consumption since all GPIO, Vcc and gnd pins are connected. Does any current flows through it or NOT?

Kindly give suggestions.

There is no general answer to that. You need to study the datasheet for each device.

Be aware, also, that there may be a big difference between the energy consumed by the bare chip and the energy consumed by the board with the chip on it.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.
