If Current = True Then Close This Circuit

    I am basically looking for a way to detect a small current that was
    intended to turn on a piezoelectric buzzer and if it senses a current
    there, to close a circuit on the same board.

    You know...no matter how novel or noble my ideas are...they always
    sound like I'm trying to make a freaking bomb...

    How small a current?

    Think sense resistor and amplifier.

  3. Or relay, or photocoupler. If you've got 3mA to work with, a photocoupler
    will probably do just fine. If you've got 50mA, an electromechanical relay
    will work.
