current shunt monitor

Measuring current with an Arduino or any other microcontroller is not as simple as measuring voltages directly with the Arduinos/microcontrollers ADC. In most cases a designer would use a current shunt amplifier/monitor. At first I started with the MAX9634F current shunt amplifier (CSA) in my design. The company Touchstone Semiconductor […]

Arduino: measuring current: use a current shunt monitor

Introduction During the last weeks I upgraded my solar-usb-charger system. Here you can find the original design: (german article). What the old design basically did was converting the 12V DC from the solar powered battery system to USB friendly 5V DC. New Features I added a couple of features: […]

Upgrade: Solar-USB-Charger

I have a couple of new pcbs in development. Firstly there is the lightning-sensor-shield. It uses a AS3935 sensor from AMS to detect lightning. I’m pretty excited to get this one running. Then we have a power LED nano shield. You plug it onto an Arduino Nano. It’s possible to […]
