Reference Design (Copper Shunt) for AS8510
This Copper-Shunt based current sensor demo utilizes the AS8510 for current measurement and thermal-coefficient compensation. It is intended for a current range of ~40A operation and 60A maximum. Two measurement paths are provided. The left one uses the AS8510’s internal temperature sensor and the right one uses a fine copper meander trace to sense temperature.

AS8510 Analog Front-End
The AS8510 data acquisition front-end IC is a virtually offset free, low noise, 2-channel measurement device. It is tailored to accurately measure battery current from mA range up to kA range in combination with a 100 µOhm shunt resistor connected in series with the battery rail. Through the second measurement channel it enables capture of either battery voltage synchronous with the current or to measure the analog output of an internal or external temperature sensor.
