Powertrain current sensors

Powertrain current sensors
Integrated circuits and reference designs will help you innovate and differentiate your powertrain current sensors subsystem. A high magnitude of current flows through the micro-ohm shunt, which results in a small amount of voltage drop across the shunt. Using current shunt monitors, this voltage is amplified and converted into digital for further signal processing.

Automotive mA-to-kA range current shunt sensor reference design

Automotive mA-to-kA range current shunt sensor reference design
This reference design shows how to detect current from the mA-to-KA range using a busbar-type shunt resistor. The increasing demand of high-capacity batteries in electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) drives the requirement for larger current spans and highly-accurate current sensors.
