TI Strengthens Current Shunt Monitor Portfolio with Four Industry-Leading Devices
Key features and benefits:
INA3221: Triple-channel shunt and bus voltage monitor with I2C interface
- Industry's first triple-channel device with digital interface enables monitoring of three separate voltages, eliminating the need for discrete devices for each voltage rail.
- 80-uV maximum offset voltage and 0.5-percent gain error enable highly accurate current measurement and precision over-current detection for end equipment such as notebook and desktop PCs, base stations and servers.
- 70-uV maximum offset voltage and low gain error enable the use of smaller shunt resistors to reduce power consumption, board space and BOM.
- First device to combine wide common-mode range (-14 V to +80 V) and high common-mode rejection ratio (120 dB) with low offset voltage across multiple gain options. This feature combination increases accuracy in high-voltage applications, such as industrial system power units and telecom power systems.
- Industry's first analog multiple output current shunt device offers multiplexed current, voltage and instantaneous power values to reduce board space and BOM.
- Programmable gain of 20, 128 and 300 allows operation over a wide dynamic current load without switching the sensing element, improving response time and accuracy in high precision products, such as such as battery-powered notebooks, mobile phones and tablets.
- High common-mode voltage range of 4 V to 76 V and a high supply range of 4.5 V to 76 V reduce system cost by allowing the device to be powered from the same voltage node it is monitoring.
- Input offset voltage of 265 uV, 50-percent lower than the competition, increases sensing accuracy in high-precision applications, such as telecom, automotive and solar power monitoring.
