Choosing the Right Sensing Element for Current Measurement

There are many choices of sensing elements to measure current to a load. No one sensor is the perfect solution for all applications because for every positive about a sensing element, there is a drawback.

This white paper provides an in-depth analysis of 3 different types of current sensing elements.

  • Learn how to choose a shunt/sense resistor, and discover the inaccuracies associated with the sensing element and extraneous parameters that compromise overall measurement.
  • Find out how to design a direct current resistance (DCR) circuit for power applications, and learn about the drawbacks of the architecture and how you can improve the current measurement technique through calibration.
  • Learn how a Hall Effect sensor works, its drawbacks and recent improvements in the technology.

Download this white paper to learn more about how these current sensing elements compare with each other, what the selection criteria are for each and which would be best for your design.
