The INA170 is a high-side, bidirectional current shunt
monitor featuring a wide input common-mode voltage range,
low quiescent current, and a tiny MSOP-8 package.
Bidirectional current measurement is accomplished by out-
put offsetting. The offset voltage level is set with an external
resistor and voltage reference. This permits measurement of
a bidirectional shunt current while using a single supply for
Input common-mode and power-supply voltages are inde-
pendent. Input voltage can range from +2.7V to +60V on
any supply voltage from +2.7V to +40V. Low 10µA input
bias current adds minimal error to the shunt current.
The INA170 converts a differential input voltage to a
current output. This current develops a voltage across an
external load resistor, setting any gain from 1 to over 100.
The INA170 is available in an MSOP-8 package, and is
specified over the extended industrial temperature range,
–40°C to +85°C with operation from –55°C to +125°C.
