Possibly, we all start electronics projects as prototypes on the breadboard. While that makes it quick and easy to put together circuits, handling power requirements can be a bit challenging. A complex project may require a variety of voltage and making a power supply in breadboard can take up a large portion of the breadboard. Beside most of the time we need to measure the current consumption of the circuit and a multimeter is not a right tool for measuring the low current like current for ESP8266 or sleep mode current for Arduino microcontroller. So, it will be very convinent to have a adjustable breadboard power supply with voltage and current display functionality. So, I want to make a breadboard power supply with cureent measurement and overcurrent protection using MAX40080 current sense amplifier.
Thanks to element14 and Analog Devices/Maxim Integrated for sending me the MAX40080 Current Sense Amplifier based MikroElectronika Current 6 Click Board for the Experimenting with Current Sense Amplifiers Design Challenge.
I have completed my Bachelor's and Master's degree in Electrical & Electronic Engineering. Currently I am working as an Assistant Professor at University of Asia Pacific, Dhaka, Bangladesh in the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering. I am also doing my PhD at Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology. For my PhD I am working with embedded electronics and machine learning. In my free time I make open-source electronics projects and share those in the internet. I have published more than 100 open-source projects in https://instructables.com/member/taifur and https://hackster.io/taifur. I also won lots of prizes for my projects.
Using the kit I want to make the following experiment before finally making the proect:
i. Getting started with the current sense amplifier with Raspberry pi
ii. Measuring low side current
iii. Measuring high side current and comparing the result
iv. Measuring very tiny current and observing accuracy
v. Experiment with overcurrent detection
vi. Making a breadboard power supply
