Low-Cost, Precision, High-Side
Current-Sense Amplifier
_______________General Description
The MAX4172 is a low-cost, precision, high-side current-
sense amplifier for portable PCs, telephones, and other
systems where battery/DC power-line monitoring is criti-
cal. High-side power-line monitoring is especially useful in
battery-powered systems, since it does not interfere with
the battery charger’s ground path. Wide bandwidth
and ground-sensing capability make the MAX4172
suitable for closed-loop battery-charger and general-
purpose current-source applications. The 0V to 32V input
common-mode range is independent of the supply volt-
age, which ensures that current-sense feedback remains
viable, even when connected to a battery in deep dis-
charge.
To provide a high level of flexibility, the MAX4172 func-
tions with an external sense resistor to set the range of
load current to be monitored. It has a current output that
can be converted to a ground-referred voltage with a sin-
gle resistor, accommodating a wide range of battery volt-
ages and currents.
An open-collector power-good output (PG) indicates
when the supply voltage reaches an adequate level to
guarantee proper operation of the current-sense amplifi-
er. The MAX4172 operates with a 3.0V to 32V supply
voltage, and is available in a space-saving, 8-pin µMAX
or SO package.
