What is Pull Down resistor ? How does Pull Down Resistor Works ?

by realfinetime  |  in Pull Down Resistor at  21:33

        Working of pull-down resistor is almost similar to that of pull up resistor. Pull down resistor is always connected to ground as shown in the following image. It helps to keep logic level near zero, when no other active devices are connected.

         In the following image, switch is kept open and hence active devices are disconnected from the system. So the logic gate input get connected to ground through a 10 K pull down resistor and the input of the logic gate will remain at LOW level.

If the switch is closed, voltage Vin get dropped across the 10 K pull down resistor. So voltage across the gate input will be the voltage drop across the pull down resistor ( Vin ). This voltage will keep the gate input at HIGH level.

All the circuits, published in this blog is only after testing and getting proper results in my private lab. When you try these circuits, you should check the supply voltage, polarity of components, presence of childrens nearby and shorts in the circuits. This website will not be responsible for any harm happened to you or your components caused by your carelessness.
