Unit µA
Name microampere
Category Electric Current
Details The microampere (µA) is a unit of electric current in the International System of Units (SI). It represents one millionth (10⁻⁶) of an ampere (A), which is the base unit for electric current. In other words, 1 µA is equal to 0.000001 A or 1 x 10⁻⁶ A.

Microamperes are typically used to measure and describe small electrical currents that flow through electronic components, circuits or devices, such as in sensors, microprocessors, and integrated circuits. It's a more suitable and practical unit for smaller current values, as they are more commonly encountered in these types of applications than whole amperes.
