TI's current sense amplifiers provide high-precision, low-cost current measurement and power measurement by amplifying the differential voltage drop across a shunt resistor from mA to 100s A. Current sense amplifiers, also called current shunt monitors, are specialized differential amplifiers with a precisely matched resistive gain network. Current sense amplifiers are used in systems to provide real-time overcurrent protection (OCP), monitor current and power to optimize system efficiency or provide current measurement for closed loop circuits.
