LTC6102 or Other Recommendation

Category: Hardware
Product Number: LTC6102

I have an application where I need to measure a current ranging from 10 uA to 50 mA with an accuracy of approximately 1% of the reading.  I have read through many datasheets and have been breadboarding and simulating the LTC6102 which in practice seems to be good, but I wanted to see if there were any other options / architectures that might be better suited to measure this wide range of currents.  Any suggestions?

  • Hi Hooman,

    Thank you for the response.  I used the parametric search to narrow my selection to the LTC6102.  My question is more if there is a better solution or technique available I should research.  For example, when reading through previous posts someone suggested using an AD8304 as a means to measure a large dynamic range.  I hadn't considered that prior to seeing that post.  I was hoping to see if there were any other similar type recommendations for a chip solution that is already available through ADI.

  • Hi ,

    I'd have to defer to other folks to chime in if they have any suggestions for you.
