We have some pcb in which contains an MCU ,and some WiFi module . Usually at start, the board takes 70-100mA with 3v3 . It gets its current from the UNO board connected to a mac. It works great like that .(if you wonder how the UNO can get this current,me too)
Problem starts when we try to measure current. If we take the
fluke device, and put it in serial to the voltage of the pcb to measure current, what happens is that the MCU starts to get resets, and the WiFi module voltage is drops .nothing is works than.
We have tried to change the current scale on the Amper-Meter , from 20m to 20A. Nothing helped.
*if we measure current of other stuff that consumes lest current, it DOES measure and show the right current. The problem occurs only with the pcb that contains a WiFi module that takes 70-100mA.
connections are: 3v3 from arduino - > Ampermeter plus->Ampermeter minus->board 3v3 .
