MAX40016

4-Decade Current Sense Amplifier with Integrated RSENSE

Industry's Widest Dynamic Range Current Sense Amplifier


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX40016 is a very wide range current sense amplifier (CSA) with internal sense element that senses from less than 300μA to greater than 3A current range. The 4-decade sensed current functions with 1% (typical) gain error and offers three, multiplexed programmable output ranges in order to interface with 12-bit ADCs. Having an integrated sense element has the extra advantage that the entire current measuring path can be factory-trimmed, saving the user from having to calibrate independent sense resistors and CSAs. The MAX40016 drops a typical of 60mV at 3A from the voltage input to load output.

The MAX40016's integrated current-sensing element saves the space and cost of an external high-power, precision current sense resistor. The MAX40016 is offered in an ultra-tiny, 1.98mm x 1.31mm, 15-bump wafer-level package (WLP), further reducing board space.

The MAX40016 operates with a supply voltage from 2.5V to 5.5V. The device features a low-power mode in which the current-sensing element remains on, but the outputs are turned off to reduce the total supply current below 10µA (max).

The MAX40016 also includes a committed on-board amplifier with an internal gain of 1.5V/V. The MAX40016 operates over the -40°C to +125°C temperature range.
