IIH High Level Input Current

JEDEC – The current into an input terminal when a specified high-level voltage is applied to that input.

TI – The current into an input when a high-level voltage is applied to that input.

 

IIL Low Level Input Current

JEDEC – The current into an input terminal when a specified low-level voltage is applied to that input.

TI – The current out of an input when a low-level voltage is applied to that input.

 

Helpful Hint:

IIH and IIL typically are found only on devices with bipolar inputs that usually require a significantly different amount of pulldown current on the input to provide a logic low, rather than pullup current to provide a logic high. CMOS inputs usually have only leakage currents at the inputs and use the II parameter, but are measured at both low- and high-bias conditions.
