Automotive-Grade Current-Sense Amplifier
28.11.2008 - 09:22
Maxim introduces the MAX9937, a high-side current-sense amplifier that uses external resistors to set the voltage gain for maximum design flexibility. The MAX9937 protects against accidental application of battery voltage in the reverse (wrong) direction and against inductive kickback transients and spikes (load dump) of -20V to +40V. These safe...
