Precision, High-Side
Current-Sense Amplifiers
_______________General Description
The MAX471/MAX472 are complete, bidirectional, high-
side current-sense amplifiers for portable PCs, tele-
phones, and other systems where battery/DC
power-line monitoring is critical. High-side power-line
monitoring is especially useful in battery-powered sys-
tems, since it does not interfere with the ground paths
of the battery chargers or monitors often found in
“smart” batteries.
The MAX471 has an internal 35mΩ current-sense resis-
tor and measures battery currents up to ±3A. For appli-
cations requiring higher current or increased flexibility,
the MAX472 functions with external sense and gain-set-
ting resistors. Both devices have a current output that
can be converted to a ground-referred voltage with a
single resistor, allowing a wide range of battery volt-
ages and currents.
An open-collector SIGN output indicates current-flow
direction, so the user can monitor whether a battery is
being charged or discharged. Both devices operate
from 3V to 36V, draw less than 100µA over tempera-
ture, and include a 18µA max shutdown mode.
