Detailed Design Procedure

The high-side power supply (VDD1) for the AMC1300 is derived from the power supply of the upper gate driver. Further details are provided in the Power Supply Recommendations section.

The floating ground reference (GND1) is derived from one of the ends of the shunt resistor that is connected to the negative input of the AMC1300 (INN). If a four-pin shunt is used, the inputs of the AMC1300 device are connected to the inner leads and GND1 is connected to one of the outer shunt leads.

Use Ohm's Law to calculate the voltage drop across the shunt resistor (VSHUNT) for the desired measured current: VSHUNT = I × RSHUNT.

Consider the following two restrictions to choose the proper value of the shunt resistor RSHUNT:

  • The voltage drop caused by the nominal current range must not exceed the recommended differential input voltage range: VSHUNT ≤ ± 250 mV
  • The voltage drop caused by the maximum allowed overcurrent must not exceed the input voltage that causes a clipping output: VSHUNT ≤ VClipping

For systems using single-ended input ADCs, Figure 52 shows an example of a TLV6001-based signal conversion and filter circuit as used on the AMC1311EVM. Tailor the bandwidth of this filter stage to the bandwidth requirement of the system and use NP0-type capacitors for best performance.
