Edit: I just found a picture. Looks like Watts Up uses a Atmel micro controller as well. It has a larger shunt to hand the higher amps.
How about the attached PDF?

The strength of the Watt's Up meter is the simultaneous display of volt/amps/watts along with additional data, the most useful of which is probably charge in mAh. I use mine all the time for setting up new motors and testing new props, I like to see the watts and not have to run the numbers. The next most useful task is in knowing how much I have discharged from my battery pack. For its price and size I can see it being a handy tool though.
