This project is a simple demonstration of working with the Current Click board
based on the MCP3201 12-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) with SPI Interface.
This example demosntrates measuring the current drawn by the consumer using a shunt resistor.

Current click is s a compact and easy solution for adding current measurement in your design. It features INA196 current shunt monitor, MCP3201 12-bit ADC, MAX6106 voltage reference as well as two screw terminals. Current Click communicates with target board microcontroller via mikroBUS SPI (SDO, SCK, CS) and AN lines.

Examples are written for:
  - EasyPIC7 - PIC18F45K22
  - EasyPIC Fusion v7 - PIC32MX795F512L
  - EasyMX PRO v7 for ST - STM32F107VC
  - EasyAVR v7 - ATMEGA32
