class CurrentParameter(MultiParameter):
    Voltage measurement via an Ithaco preamp and converting volt to current.

    To be used when you feed a current into the Ithaco, send the Ithaco's
    output voltage to a lockin or other voltage amplifier, and you have
    the voltage reading from that amplifier as a qcodes parameter.

    ``CurrentParameter.get()`` returns ``(volt_raw, curr)``

        measured_param: a gettable parameter returning the
            voltage read from the Ithaco output.

        c_amp_ins: an Ithaco instance where you manually
            maintain the present settings of the real Ithaco amp.

            Note: it should be possible to use other current preamps, if they
            define parameters ``sens`` (sensitivity, in A/V), ``sens_factor``
            (an additional gain) and ``invert`` (bool, output is inverted)

        name: the name of the current output. Default 'curr'.
            Also used as the name of the whole parameter.
