I am currently working on NXP (LPC Xpresso 54114) board. I am measuring the current consumption due to the interrupt providing in the main by power measurement tool. But, I really wanna verify that the result what we are getting from the power measurement tool is trustable completely or is better than the other measurement devices like ammeter, oscilloscope. Therefore, I wanted to take the current consumption measurement on an external oscilloscope. 


Does, anybody know how to measure the similar current consumption (which we are getting it from the power measurement tool in IDE) on an external oscilloscope. So, that I can compare the results from both. 


Circuit diagram would be a great help.


Thanks in advance,
