SBAS667F April 2016 – April 2020 AMC1301
In a typical frequency inverter application, the high-side power supply (VDD1) for the device is derived from the floating power supply of the upper gate driver. For lowest cost, a Zener diode may be used to limit the voltage to 5 V (or 3.3 V, depending on the design) ± 10%. Alternatively a low-cost, low-dropout (LDO) regulator (for example, the LM317-N) may be used to minimize noise on the power supply. TI recommends a low-ESR decoupling capacitor of 0.1 µF to filter this power-supply path. Place this capacitor (C2 in Figure 54) as close as possible to the VDD1 pin of the AMC1301 for best performance. If better filtering is required, an additional 10-µF capacitor may be used. The floating ground reference (GND1) is derived from the end of the shunt resistor, which is connected to the negative input (VINN) of the device. If a four-pin shunt is used, the device inputs are connected to the inner leads, and GND1 is connected to one of the outer leads of the shunt.
To decouple the digital power supply on the controller side, use a 0.1-µF capacitor placed as close to the VDD2 pin of the AMC1301 as possible, followed by an additional capacitor from 1 µF to 10 µF.
