'I/O current'

Hi all,
Quick question, PIC can handle 20 mA per I/O line.
It means I can drive seven of the  I/O-s in the same time with
20 mA ?
Thanks,

Peter Schultz

Yes. Look at the total consumption. It can only handle in the region of 100
to 120 mA in total. It should be fine. Which PIC you intend to use in this
way.

Look at the Absolute Maximum Ratings. For instance, the 16C84 has a max.
current of 100 mA into the VDD pin.

Most (all?) of the PICs I'm aware of have a limit for the total of all
pins of 50mA, so no, you cannot drive all 7 segments at 20mA each
since this would be...  ummm, ahhh... 140mA, which would seriously
exceed the absolute maximum rating for the chip.

Sorry - Martin.

Yes.

Read the manual carefuly!

Accoding to 16C84 datasheet :
Max current sunk by PORTA      - 80mA
Max current sourced by PORTA   - 50mA
Max current sunk by PORTB              - 150mA
Max current sourced by PORTB   - 100 mA

So you can use only sunked current from PORTB to handle 20x7=140mA.

   Yes.
   But it doesn't men You have a valid levels for '0' and '1'.
These levels will depend on a lot of factors: load current, Vdd,
temperature...
Please re-read complete datasheet (not hilightes only!). Tables
and plots are of special interest for You.
