The differential amplifier used for this design should have the following features:
The INA213B is an excellent choice for this application because all the required features are included. In general, instrumentation amplifiers (INAs) do not have the input common-mode swing to ground that is essential for this application. In addition, INAs require external resistors to set their gain, which is not desirable for low-drift applications. Difference amplifiers typically have larger input bias currents, which reduce solution accuracy at small load currents. Difference amplifiers typically have a gain of 1 V/V. When the gain is adjustable, these amplifiers use external resistors that are not conducive to low-drift applications.
