Bidirectional Current Sense Circuit with Separate Charge/Discharge Output

Bidirectional Current Sense Circuit with Separate Charge/Discharge Output

The LTC6102/LTC6102HV monitor current via the voltage across an external sense resistor (shunt resistor). Internal circuitry converts input voltage to output current, allowing a small sense signal on a large common mode voltage to be translated to a ground-referred signal. Low DC offset allows the use of very low shunt resistor values and large gain-setting resistors. As a result, power loss in the shunt is reduced.
