Battery-management system reference design eliminates shunt resistors

From ams, a current-sensing solution for battery management systems needs no shunt resistor; it achieves accurate, linear current measurement up to 100A by monitoring voltage drop across a PCB’s copper track.


RF digital step attenuator gets performance boost for advanced wireless designs

Peregrine Semiconductor’s UltraCMOS PE4312 DSA is a successor to the PE4302 for wide dynamic-range network-infrastructure designs that require highly accurate and efficient amplitude control.
