DIODES ZXCT1021E5TA

ZXCT1021
Low offset high-side current monitor
Description
The ZXCT1021 is a precision high-side current
sense monitor. Using this type of device
eliminates the need to disrupt the ground
plane when sensing a load current.
giving better tolerances for small sense
resistors necessary at higher currents.
The wide input voltage range of 20V down to as
low as 2.5V make it suitable for a range of
applications. With a minimum operating
current of just 25µA, combined with its SOT235 package make it suitable for portable battery
equipment too.
The ZXCT1021 provides a fixed gain of 10 for
applications where minimal sense voltage is
required.
The very low offset voltage enables a typical
accuracy of 3% for sense voltages of only 10mV,

Application information
The ZXCT1021 has a fixed dc voltage gain of 100. No external scaling resistors are required for
the output. Output voltage is simply defined as:
VOUT = 10 x VSENSE (V)
Where VSENSE = VIN - VLOAD
PCB trace shunt resistor for low cost solution
Figure 1 shows a PCB layout suggestion for a low cost solution where a PCB resistive trace in
replacement for a conventional shunt resistor, can be used. The resistor section is 25mm x
0.25mm giving approximately 150m⍀ using 1 oz copper. Smaller resistances can be used if
required.
Total circuit solution: 1 component. Shows area of 150m⍀
sense resistor compared to SOT23 package.
Practical tolerance of the PCB resistor will be around 5%
depending on manufacturing methods.
