I have an attiny85 on a breadboard and a led on pin 2 blinking every 2 seconds.
The multimeter is connected on the VCC pin of the attiny85. When led is ON I can see current flowing on my multimeter… when led is OFF i see 0 current…
I tried all the “A” settings of the multimeter 10,200m,20m,2000μ.
The multimeter is a cheap lexman pt1000 .
Is it because my multimeter isn’t super precise? If yes, what should I buy?
I want to test the sleep modes etc thats why I am trying to check the current flowing while NOT on sleep mode… if my multimeter isn’t precise enough to see the current drawn by the attiny85 when led is off then imagine when on sleep mode!!
any thoughts gents?
