Other Parts Discussed in Thread: AM26C32
Lets say if it is a line receiver, in the case that all the inputs are not in the rail in some situation.
here is the paragraph from ahct14 datasheet
7.9 Typical Characteristics One common misconception is that the current consumption will be less when switching a slow signal into a Schmitt trigger. This is partly true because the Schmitt trigger prevents oscillation which can draw a lot of current; however, you will see higher ICC current due to the amount of time the input is not at the rail. This is Delta ICC. Delta ICC is where the inputs are not at the rails and upper or lower drive transistors are partially on. Figure 1 shows ICC across the input voltage sweep.
thank you so much in advance!!
