SBOS470A December 2019 – June 2021 INA293
The INA293 –3-dB bandwidth is gain dependent, with several gain options of 20 V/V, 50 V/V, 100 V/V, 200 V/V, and 500 V/V. The unique multistage design enables the amplifier to achieve high bandwidth at all gains. This high bandwidth provides the throughput and fast response that is required for the rapid detection and processing of overcurrent events.
The bandwidth of the device also depends on the applied VSENSE voltage. Figure 7-1 shows the bandwidth performance profile of the device over frequency as output voltage increases for each gain variation. As shown in Figure 7-1, the device exhibits the highest bandwidth with higher VSENSE voltages, and the bandwidth is higher with lower device gain options. Individual requirements determine the acceptable limits of error for high frequency current-sensing applications. Testing and evaluation in the end application or circuit is required to determine the acceptance criteria, and to validate that the performance levels meet the system specifications.
