Description

This single-supply low-side, bidirectional current sensing solution can accurately detect load currents from –1A to 1A. The linear range of the output is from 110mV to 3.19V. Low-side current sensing keeps the common-mode voltage near ground, and is thus most useful in applications with large bus voltages.

Features
  • Single 5V supply with half-supply reference
  • Input: -2.22mV to 2.27mV differential
  • Output: 225mV - 4.72V 
  • Strain gauge resistance variation: 115 - 125 Ohms 
  • Gain: 1001V/V
