The Getting Started with Current Sense Amplifiers series helps engineers learn how to maximize the performance achieved when measuring current with a current sense amplifier (also called a current shunt monitor).
This is a series of short videos, each addressing a different topic. While intended as a series to be viewed in order, each session is stand-alone and can be viewed without the need to watch it all if there is a specific topic you are interested in learning more about.
Learn about solutions that pair the flexibility of digital power control with C2000 MCUs and in-line current sensing with the high-power efficiency of GaN.
Current sense amplifiers have been implemented in applications used for current and power measurement. These simple and affordable solutions enable designers to achieve real-time overcurrent protection, system optimization and current measurement for closed-loop circuits with excellent linearity and accuracy. This curriculum will discuss how to monitor the status of an HEV/EV battery using current sense amplifiers.
The linear amplifier troubleshooting guide highlights various techniques to assist with application problem-solving, debugging and datasheet measurements on TI specific products. The hands-on courses aid in circuit analysis, isolate the root cause of an application non-conformance and provide detailed product level information to a TI representative. Industry experts present each topic in order to help reduce debugging time and move quickly through troubleshooting to production.
