Is there a commonly used sensor for measuring current that can be placed on a breadboard? I'm a little curious how much current my project is using at any given time (max of 2.5A). I'd prefer the chip to have an analog voltage output. I did come across the ZMC10D-ND chip, but I was wondering if that chip is the one that's typically used or this purpose
you are better off just wiring in your DVM meter in it's current measurement mode and monitor
BTW that link to the ZMC10D-ND doesn't seem to work.
