The MAX4073 low-cost, high-side current-sense amplifier features a voltage output that eliminates the need for gain-setting resistors making it ideal for cell phones, notebook computers, PDAs, and other systems where current monitoring is crucial. High-side current monitoring does not interfere with the ground path of the battery charger making the MAX4073 particularly useful in battery-powered systems. The input common-mode range of +2V to +28V is independent of the supply voltage. The MAX4073's wide 1.8MHz bandwidth makes it suitable for use inside battery-charger control loops.

The combination of three gain versions and a selectable external-sense resistor sets the full-scale current reading. The MAX4073 offers a high level of integration, resulting in a simple and compact current-sense solution.

The MAX4073 operates from a +3V to +28V single supply and draws only 0.5mA of supply current. This device is specified over the automotive operating temperature range (-40°C to +125°C) and is available in a space-saving 5-pin SC70 package (half the size of the SOT23).

For a similar device in a 6-pin SOT23 with a wider common-mode voltage range (0 to +28V), see the MAX4173 data sheet.

Product Detail

The MAX4073 evaluation kit (EV kit) is an assembled and tested PCB used to evaluate the MAX4073 high-side current-sense amplifier, which is designed for low-cost, compact, current-sense applications. The EV kit has a 2V to 28V input common-mode sense-voltage range that is independent of the supply voltage. The EV kit comes assembled with the MAX4073F IC (internal gain = 50V/V), but can also evaluate the MAX4073T/MAX4073H (internal gains of 20/100, respectively) ICs.
