At the just-concluded "World Elctronics Achievement Awards" ceremony, SGM8196 won the "Amplifier / Data Conversion of the Year".
The award ceremony was held in Shenzhen on November 2, and Dr. Ruoya Yao, Chief Scientist of SGMICRO, represented the company at the ceremony.
The SGM8196 is a high voltage, high-side current-sense amplifier that operates from 2.7V to 5.5V single supply. The device also features a wide common mode voltage range from 2.9V to 70V in single-supply operation or (-VS) + 2.9V to (-VS) + 70V in dual-supply operation. And the input common mode voltage is independent with the power supply voltage.
The SGM8196 is designed to convert the measured small differential voltage across the high-side shunt resistor to the output voltage referred to GND. There are four different gains for SGM8196: 20V/V, 25V/V, 50V/V or 100V/V. The current consumption of the device is only 320μA and almost no leakage current flows into the device in standby mode, which minimizes power consumption in applications.
The SGM8196 is available in Green SOIC-8 and TSSOP-8 packages. It is specified over the extended -40℃ to +125℃ temperature range.
