# Electronic – Using single resistor to receive 5v signal on the 3.3v rated pin

input-impedancemicrocontrollerpinsvoltage divider

I have been investigating ways to safely receive 5v signal on the input pin that can only support 3.3v input signal. I came across an article that states that it's possible to only use a single 10k Ohm resistor to achieve that. I can understand how this can prevent too much current from flowing through the schottky diode, but I am still skeptical this resistor would produce the necessary voltage drop for the signal that goes further into the MCU since the resistance of the resistor that is placed after diodes is much higher than 10k.

Will the 10k resistor work for this purpose and if so, what voltage drop would it produce?

Thanks a lot.
