Low Side Current Sense

Mar 16th 2010

Low Side Current Sense

Sensing the amount of current through a load on the low side has the disadvantage of raising the return connection to the load from ground. The advantage of such an approach is that it is very easy to implement using a basic non-inverting gain stage. The LTC6081 operates linearly down to ground also in this single supply example.
