The MCP6C02 device from Microchip Technology is a single high-side current sense amplifier. It is designed specifically to sense the current through a shunt resistor and convert this measurement to a proportional output voltage. The amplifier comes with preset gains of 20 V/V, 50 V/V, and 100 V/V. The input pins can support voltages up to 65 V. The output voltage range is determined by a separate supply pin spanning 2 V to 5.5 V to make it easy to interface to an ADC or MCU that is operating at 2.5 V, 3.3 V, and 5 V. The zero-drift architecture supports very low input errors, which allows a design to use shunt resistors of lower value and lower power dissipation. The rich feature set of the MCP6C02 device makes it suitable for battery monitoring, motor control, and industrial computing applications.
