In the extreme, a very large shunt is required for nanoamp currents, leading to long settling times and slow measurement rates.
These devices also feature a precision 4 MHz internal oscillator, 33 instructions, two stack levels, 25 milliAmp source/sink current IO, low power (100 nanoAmp) sleep current, a wide operating voltage range from 2- to 5.5-volts, one 8-bit timer, a watchdog timer, In Circuit Serial Programming (ICSP) technology, power-on reset, power-saving sleep mode and (in the PIC10F204 and PIC10F206 only) an analog comparator module.
Nanoamp ([10.sup.-9]A) measurements and lower are becoming increasingly more common.
A charged particle ionizes the n-type silicon, and the movement of 20,000 electrons in 2 ns to 3 ns induces a nanoamp signal on an aluminum base.
