Switched load current sensing

Category: Hardware
Product Number: LTC6101


I'm studying a design of a current sense circuit of a switch load (LED for automotive application).

The goal is to detect load current defaults, up to 200mA.

Switching of the load is managed by a power switch not including current sense function.

I think LTC6101 could be a good device for this.

My question is where should I place the shunt resistor in relation to the power switch?

Upstream or downstream? Low side or high side?

Here is follow a schematic which question me...
