Bi-directional current monitors have ±0.8% gain error over temperature thumbnail

Bi-directional current monitors have ±0.8% gain error over temperature

Diodes has announced bi-directional current monitors based on a “zero-drift architecture”, according to the company. Called the ZXCT199 series, they are rail-to-rail voltage output type devices with gains of 50V/V, 100V/V or 200V/V (typically 120dB common-mode rejection). Input is taken across a shunts at common-mode voltages from -0.1V to +26V, independent of the 2.7 to …
