JAJSFO3D June 2018 – June 2021 AMC1302
Do not leave the inputs of the AMC1302 unconnected (floating) when the device is powered up. If the device inputs are left floating, the input bias current may drive the inputs to a positive value that exceeds the operating common-mode input voltage and the device outputs the fail-safe voltage as described in the Section 7.3.3 section.
Connect the high-side ground (GND1) to INN, either by a hard short or through a resistive path. A DC current path between INN and GND1 is required to define the input common-mode voltage. Do not exceed the input common-mode range as specified in the Section 6.3 table. For best accuracy, route the ground connection as a separate trace that connects directly to the shunt resistor rather than shorting GND1 to INN directly at the input to the device. See the Section 10 section for more details.
