This application report describes voltage and current measurement methods using the MSP430 universal timer/port module. The report explains the two measurement methods (charge and discharge) and shows how to measure voltage and current. The equations for the calculations are also given. Further sections show additional applications such as the measurement of two voltage inputs, bridge arrangements, and R/2R configurations. Equations are given for all examples.
