Shunts ; Measuring current taken to a higher level

Precision shunts are very precise resistors inserted into a circuit in order to measure the current flowing through that circuit.  The shunt does this by providing a very small voltage drop across its resistance proportional to the current flowing through the shunt. ...

Measuring Tiny Resistances Accurately when using resistors

Digital multi-meter When measuring the resistance of something is a great deal more complicated if that resistance is very small. With bigger resistances, measurements can be as simple as connecting two leads between a digital multi-meter (DMM) and the device under...
