30A Supply Monitor Simplifies Board Level Energy Measurements

30A Supply Monitor Simplifies Board Level Energy Measurements
Linear Technology Corp.

The LTC2947 power and energy monitor for 0V to 15 Vdc supply rails integrates a 300-µΩ temperature-compensated sense resistor, providing users with a simple 24-mm2 solution that provides up to 1.2% accurate energy readings up to ±30A. When measuring a full-scale current of 30A, the voltage drop over the integrated sense resistor is about 9 mV, causing power dissipation of approximately a quarter Watt or about 10 mW when measuring a 6A rail. In addition to low power dissipation, the LTC2947 offers high dynamic range due to its low offset of only 6 mA (or 1.8 µV). Three integrated delta-sigma ADCs and an internal or external precision time base (crystal or clock) enable accurate measurement of multiple parameters, including current, voltage, power, charge, energy, temperature and time. Specified over the commercial and industrial temperature ranges, the LTC2947 is offered in a 32-lead 4 mm x 6 mm QFN package. Pricing starts at $5.95 each/1,000.
