Can we use ADC for current measurement?

Submitted by Shaurya on Mon, 09/10/2018 - 12:11

Hi guys,

i have made various projects like digital voltmeter, arduino variable power supply and many other, in which i am sensing voltage value through a microcontroller using ADC..

So, my question is can we use ADC for measuring current...

I have an idea to do the same like first convert the current value into voltage and then sense it... am i correct?

Suggest the better way to do this and also if you have any circuit for changing the current value to voltage value...

Thanks.
