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:

This article showcases the advantages of an op amp loop-stability analysis method that I use myself and recommend to others.
High-speed data converters can now digitize or generate signals directly at radio frequencies (RFs), replacing traditional RF components such as mixers and local oscillators (LOs) with digital processing
The need to translate frequencies up or down is a basic signal-chain need. The key component used to do this is the mixer, which essentially multiplies two signals together
There are several features of current-feedback fully differential amplifiers that set them apart from voltage feedback fully differential amplifiers. This article will detail several of these differences and how they impact circuit design
In this article, I’ll show you how to optimize SAR driver amplifier and RC filter settling performance by using SPICE simulations.
