Inexpensive, compact, high performance integrated current sensing

Fig. 1. Using the GMR field detector allows for a simplified compact integrated current sensor design.
In the area of control and sensor integration, CPES has developed methods to integrate current sensing into power conversion systems using intrinsic properties without need for additional interconnections. Methods have been developed which use simple, compact, highly sensitive, yet inexpensive magnetic field detectors that can be easily embedded in power conversion interconnections. Most importantly, the methods developed enable designers to avoid major potential pitfalls and obtain results superior to the existing state-of-the-art in current sensing.
