I am not sure. I am not able to tell the difference between 0.01-uA and 1-uA. Both are less than I can accurately measure.

This device also has very low quiescent current drain.jarruda wrote:I'm really asking if "Leakage Current," as referenced in the data sheet, is the same thing as a circuit's quiescent draw.
