The Spectrum of Current Sensing: From DC to Light
Current measurement is an essential part of sensor interface, control, power management, and communications. The span of current sensing is from picoamperes to kiloamperes, and from DC to gigahertz (or light, when using photodiodes). We will cover high power and motor control, 4-20mA industrial communications, energy monitoring, photodiodes, isolation, and developing precision current sources. We will also show on-line tools for circuit design.
