Description

The TIDA-00738 TI design demonstrates a unique approach for extending the current measurement range using a single shunt and voltage measurement using AMC1304Mx5 Isolated Delta-Sigma (ΔΣ) modulator. With careful selection of a low value shunt resistor that minimizes power dissipation, a front end amplifier with low noise and by introducing two gain paths, both upper and lower current limit is extended.  Accuracy of < ±0.5 % for both current and voltage measurement is achieved by interfacing the modulator output to AM437x host processor which performs the Sinc3 filtering.

Features
  • Single Phase voltage and current measurement (shunt based) using isolated delta-sigma modulator (AMC1304Mx5)
  • Measurement accuracy:
    • AC Current: < ± 0.5% from 0.1A to 40A (or 60A) for In = 1A
    • AC Voltage: < ± 0.5% from 10V to 300V
  • AFE interfaced to host  MCU (AM437x Sitara™ ARM® Cortex®-A9 Processor) which performs Sinc3 digital filtering using PRU-ICSS
  • Onboard isolated ± 2.5V and +5.0V Power supply for AMC1304Mx5 and OPA188 using Transformer Driver and LDOs
  • Designed to work from 0.1A to 60A (In=1A) and can be extended for wider range (In=5A) by changing Shunt and Gain values.
