Current sensing plays an integral part in robotics systems for use cases such as motor-drive phase-current measurements, battery-management systems, and general peripheral monitoring.
New op amps with close-to-ideal specifications enable use of sub-milliohm sense resistors for lower voltage drop and power loss, but there's a new set of considerations and concerns.
High efficiency and chemically inert nature cemented value of Silicon Carbide in power electronics sphere, leading to boom in its utilization.
Inexpensive coin- and button-cell holders of stamped metal may work for a while, but their longer electrical and mechanical integrity is questionable while their user convenience varies widely.
Here is a description of three current-sensing methods for current-mode control bridgeless totem-pole PFC, along with their trade-offs.
If you need more power for the power section of any board you are designing, you can find simple and cheap solutions by using the Analog Devices LT1083 regulator.
As fascinating and challenging as the PCB design process can be, it is important to take all necessary precautions to ensure proper circuit operation, especially when dealing with high power PCBs.
