Content for INA260


The INA260 is a digital-output, current, power, and voltage monitor with an I2C and SMBus™-compatible interface with an integrated precision shunt resistor. It enables high-accuracy current and power measurements and over-current detection at common-mode voltages that can vary from 0 V to 36 V, independent of the supply voltage. The device is a bidirectional, low- or high-side, current-shunt monitor that measures current flowing through the internal current-sensing resistor. The integration of the precision current-sensing resistor provides calibration-equivalent measurement accuracy with ultra-low temperature drift performance and ensures that an optimized Kelvin layout for the sensing resistor is always obtained. The INA260 features up to 16 programmable addresses on the I2C-compatible interface. The digital interface allows programmable alert thresholds, analog-to-digital converter (ADC) conversion times, and averaging. To facilitate ease of use, an internal multiplier enables direct readouts of current in amperes and power in watts. The device operates from a single 2.7-V to 5.5-V supply, drawing 310 µA (typical) of supply current. The INA260 is specified over the operating temperature range between –40°C and +125°C and is available in the 16-pin TSSOP package.

Multi-channel Wifi Voltage & Current Meter

“When breadboarding, one often needs to monitor different parts of the circuit at once. To avoid the pain having to stick the multimeter probes from one place to another, I wanted to design a multi-channel voltage and current meter. The …
