Library Description

The library contains calibration function, to be used on startup for more accurate readings, as well as
4 functions that measure Voltage, Current, Resistance, and Capacitance. Calibration should be performed at startup when all measurement leads are disconnected.

Key functions:

  • float multim_measureU() - This function measures voltage, and returns the value in millivolts.
  • float multim_measureR() - This function measures resistance, and returns the value in ohms.
  • float multim_measureC() - This function measures capacitance, and returns the value in nanofarads.
  • float multim_measureI() - This function measures current, and returns the value in milliamperes.

Example description

The application is composed of three sections:

  • The application is composed of three sections :
  • System Initialization - Initializes pin control, SPI peripheral and logger.
  • Application Initialization - Initializes the driver, and performs calibration. Application Task (Code snippet) - Outputs read values.
char text[20];
 float value = 0;
 value = multim_measureR();
 FloatToStr(value,text);
 mikrobus_logWrite("R = ",_LOG_TEXT);
 mikrobus_logWrite(text,_LOG_TEXT);
 mikrobus_logWrite(" Ohms",_LOG_LINE);

 value = multim_measureU();
 FloatToStr(value,text);
 mikrobus_logWrite("U = ",_LOG_TEXT);
 mikrobus_logWrite(text,_LOG_TEXT);
 mikrobus_logWrite(" mV",_LOG_LINE);


 value = multim_measureI();
 FloatToStr(value,text);
 mikrobus_logWrite("I = ",_LOG_TEXT);
 mikrobus_logWrite(text,_LOG_TEXT);
 mikrobus_logWrite(" mA",_LOG_LINE);


 value = multim_measureC();
 FloatToStr(value,text);
 mikrobus_logWrite("C = ",_LOG_TEXT);
 mikrobus_logWrite(text,_LOG_TEXT);
 mikrobus_logWrite(" nF",_LOG_LINE);

 mikrobus_logWrite("-------------------",_LOG_LINE);
 Delay_ms( 1000 );

Other MikroElektronika libraries used in the example:

  • Conversions
  • C_String 
  • UART

Additional notes and information

Depending on the development board you are using, you may need USB UART clickUSB UART 2 click or RS232 click to connect to your PC, for development systems with no UART to USB interface available on the board. The terminal available in all MikroElektronika compilers, or any other terminal application of your choice, can be used to read the message.

mikroBootloader

10

To make it as simple as possible to program MCUs on our dev boards, most of them come with a preloaded USB-HID bootloader. While the bootloader firmware is specific to each chip, the PC utility for loading your HEX file to the target microcontroller is universal. It’s done in four steps and takes less than 20 seconds.

Weather click

2

Weather click carries the BME280 integrated environmental unit from Bosch. It’s a sensor that detects humidity, pressure and temperature.Weather click can communicate with the target MCU either through mikroBUS SPI or I2C interfaces. The board is designed to use a 3.3V power supply.

Led driver click

0

LED driver click carries the MCP1662 high-voltage step-up voltage driver from Microchip. The click is designed to run on either 3.3V or 5V power supply. It communicates with the target microcontroller over PWM pin on the mikroBUS™ line.
