Part Number: TCA9539
I've got question about datasheet's 184.108.40.206 part:
Because the LED acts as a diode, when the LED is off, the I/O VIN is about 1.2 V less than VCC.
My understanding is I/O is configured as input, and LED is off. But why VIN is about 1.2V less than VCC?
Vin is VCC-Vdiode， Vdiode should be less than 0.7V when off, 1.2V is almost on from my understanding.
The 1.2V comes the voltage drop across the LED due to leakage current. The 1.2V is an arbitrary number which will vary depending on the the LED you use. Some LEDs may have a 'Vdiode' less than 0.7V and other may have some larger than 1.2V. The point of this section in the datasheet is to highlight the effect of the leakage current into the input when a weak pull up resistor is not present.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.
