Nano current meter based on an ATtiny84

Johnson Davies published a new build: This project describes a simple low-current meter I devised to check the sleep current of different microcontroller circuits, such as ones based on AVR microcontrollers. It’s capable of measuring currents of between 10µA and 30nA with reasonable accuracy, using an ATtiny84 and a few other low-cost parts Project details […]

Current meter based on ESP-12E and LTC4150

Victor Chew made a simple current meter based on ESP-12E, LTC-4150 and SSD1306 OLED module that measure the average current draw of a variable load accurately: The meter is powered by the micro-USB port on the ESP-12E. I soldered header pins onto the IN and OUT terminals of the LTC-4150. The whole idea is that […]
