Kelvin Sensing Connections

There are many places in the system design where the current through a signal path is measured by use of a sense resistor in series with the signal path. In these cases, the resistor should be connected by use of a “Kelvin” connection, or a “Force-Sense” connection. This means that two connections are made to the resistor that carry the high level of current, and two connections are made separately to measure the voltage across the resistor. This prevents the sense lines from being affected by the extra resistance of the copper traces, and makes the measurement more accurate. An example of the “Force-Sense” connection is shown in Figure 53.

The TPS99000-Q1 uses a sense resistor to measure the current delivered to the LEDs. These differential sense lines are the inputs to the part LS_SENSE_P and LS_SENSE_N. It is important to notice that although LS_SENSE_N may be electrically connected to ground by the netlist, this signal must be routed as a separate trace to prevent it from being affected by changes in the ground plane.
