Diodes Incorporated Announces High-Side Current Monitors That Simplify Measurement at High Voltage

DALLAS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 20, 2010 — Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete and analog semiconductor markets, today announces a family of 6 high reliability current monitors for 40V and 60V operation. The ZXCT108X devices detect current in a high-side sense resistor and reference it to ground, thereby reducing system circuit complexity and cost.

Their wide supply and common-mode voltage range suits a broad range of uses. For industrial and computer power supply applications, the ZXCT1083, ZXCT1085, and ZXCT1087 support a voltage range of 2.7V to 40V. The ZXCT1082, ZXCT1084, and ZXCT1086, rated for 2.7V to 60V operation, handles automotive load dump and SELV circuits.

With independent supply and common-mode voltage inputs, the current monitors permit currents to be measured beyond the limits of normal power supply rails. Their low quiescent current of 0.6µA means associated measurement errors are significantly reduced.

The product line offers users the option of both fixed and programmable gain. Providing a fixed voltage gain of 25 are the ZXCT1084 and ZXCT1085, while for the ZXCT1086 and ZXCT1087 the gain is 50. The ZXCT1082 and ZXCT1083 use 3 external gain setting resistors, which increase versatility by enabling wide gain ranges and optimization of bandwidths.

The current monitors are provided in the small footprint SOT25 package and use green mold compound. An extended industrial temperature range of –40ºC to 125ºC supports use in automotive and higher temperature scenarios. Further information is available on the Company’s website at www.diodes.com.
