The TIDA-01541 reference design reduces system cost and enables a compact design for isolated phase current and DC link voltage measurement in three-phase inverters, while achieving high bandwidth and sensing accuracy. The output of the isolated amplifiers is interfaced to the internal ADC of the MCU using a differential-to-single-ended circuit. Use of isolated amplifiers enables using SAR ADC within MCU, thereby lowering system cost without any trade-offs on the current sensing. The 8-pin package reduces board form factor. High bandwidth of the isolated amplifier enables protection of IGBTs within 3.5 µs and high-performance specifications enable high-accuracy current and voltage measurements. The DC link voltage measurement is done with a high input impedance to avoid effect of source impedance due to high-voltage potential divider to improve accuracy.
