The Smallest Isolated Direct-Sensing Solution Footprint on the Market
MPS’s MCS18xx current sensor series offers a tiny, single-IC solution that is ideal for applications requiring the combination of high-current monitoring and high isolation voltage between the high-current primary-side and the low-voltage side. These applications include phase inverters, solar panels, uninterruptable power supplies, appliances and white goods, AC/DC power supply control, and more. This family of current sensors is smaller and more cost-effective than existing current-sense design options, such as shunt or inductor solutions, as they require fewer components and allow for a smaller footprint and easier design.
Wide, bidirectional sensing range from 5A to 50A
Extremely low 0.9mΩ primary conductor resistance for thermal and power efficiency
Requires no additional components
Industry standard SOIC-8 package can be placed on a surface-mount PCB
Monolithic Power Systems provides small, highly energy efficient, easy-to-use power solutions for systems found in industrial applications, telecom infrastructures, cloud computing, automotive, and consumer applications.
