LT1997-3 - Single Supply Current Sense

Sense resistors R1 converts a current into a voltage. This voltage is buffered (gain of 1) from the input to the output in this amplifier. V1 tests the circuit for response to common mode variation. A simulation will show that the output voltage variation due to the common mode voltage V1 is very small.


Single Supply Current Sense


The LT®1997-3 combines a precision operational amplifier with highly-matched resistors to form a one-chip solution for accurately amplifying voltages. Gains from –13 to +14 with accuracy of 0.006% (60ppm) can be achieved using no external components. The LT1997-3 is particularly well suited for use as a difference amplifier, where the excellent resistor matching results in a common mode rejection ratio of greater than 91dB.
