Re: Another item for the high current sensing toolkit....
I've actually read a little bit about how some electric vehicles catch fire too easily because of the overload to the systems. If you think about it on a smaller scale and talk about rechargeable batteries, not very many people even know how to properly care for those and the batteries are overrun and overworked in no time. What more when it comes to such a glorifies appliance? I don't have high hopes for the future of electric cars unless we figure out how to better maintain its batteries!

Dan,

There is one other useful item for a high current sensing tookit, particularly suited for high gauge cables. The concept is really targeted at OEM's that could procure a purpose-built cable:

The latest direct radio frequency (RF)-sampling transceivers provide a number of powerful capabilities that enable advanced system features like multiband and multimode operation, as well as frequency translation and fast frequency hopping.
At the heart of a transceiver is usually a phase-locked-loop (PLL) synthesizer, which delivers a signal to downstream components such as mixers, filters and power amplifiers.
A transimpedance amplifier (TIA), which takes the current from a photodiode and converts it into a usable voltage with low output impedance, can provide effective gain for a photodiode signal.
In this article, I’ll provide an overview of SAR ADC reference input behavior and reference input drive circuit topologies
Although the name seems generic enough to encompass all kinds of voltage transients, electrical fast transients (EFTs) are pulses in systems that come as a result of a voltage source suddenly switching onto or off of an inductive load.
