[FAQ] Current Sensors and Power Monitors FAQ Links

Many postings in the E2E Forum can be designated as a Frequently Asked Question or FAQ. In order for you to quickly create a system and implement a current and power sensing solution here is a curation of links to these FAQ postings. As time goes on more public postings can be designated as a FAQ and thus may not be listed here, but can be searched in this forum.

Device specifications:

What are the input bias current and input impedance specifications for bus voltage monitors?

How do I know the output swing of current sense amplifiers or OPAs in general?

Bandwidth considerations for measuring PWM signals specifically with INA240.

Device protection:

Why can I exceed the absolute maximum voltage rating if I limit the input current?

What are some ways to protect a current sensor and prevent its input voltage from exceeding -0.3V absolute max rating?

Considerations for adding TVS protection diodes


System level considerations:

Choosing pull-up resistor for an I2C bus.

What are power sequencing considerations for current sense amplifiers?

What is the closed-loop output impedance (ZOUT) of a current sensor and how can I compensate this output for capacitive load stability?


Error analysis:

How do external resistors on a reference pin affect CMRR and gain error for current sense amplifiers?

What are the critical error sources for measuring small current levels?


Device-specific considerations:
