The MAX4376/MAX4377/MAX4378 single, dual, and quad precision high-side current-sense amplifiers are available in space-saving packages. They feature buffered voltage outputs that eliminate the need for gain-setting resistors and are ideal for today's notebook computers, cell phones, and other systems where current monitoring is critical. These precision devices are offered in three fixed-gain versions of 20, 50, and 100: GAIN SUFFIX 20 T 50 F 100 H For example, MAX4376TAUK is a single high-side amplifier with a gain of 20. High-side current monitoring is especially useful in battery-powered systems since it does not interfere with the ground path of the battery charger. The input common-mode range of 0 to +28V is independent of the supply voltage and ensures that the current-sense feedback remains viable even when connected to a battery pack in deep discharge. The full-scale current reading can be set by choosing the appropriate voltage gain and external-sense resistor. This capability offers a high level of integration and flexibility, resulting in a simple and compact current-sense solution. The MAX4376/MAX4377/MAX4378 operate over a supply voltage range of +3V to +28V, draw 1mA of supply current per amplifier, and operate over the full automotive temperature range of -40°C to +125°C. These devices have a wide bandwidth of 2MHz, making them suitable for use inside battery-charger control loops. The buffered outputs drive up to 2mA of output current into a ground-referenced load. The MAX4376 is available in a tiny 5-pin SOT23 package. The MAX4377/MAX4378 are available in space-saving 8-pin µMAX and 14-pin TSSOP packages, respectively.
