PowerLab Notes: How to Remote Sense your Power Supply

August 18, 2014 10:14 am | by Tiger Zhou, Texas Instruments, www.ti.com | Blogs | Comments

In high-end telecommunication applications, you often face the challenges of delivering power across large-scale printed circuit boards (PCBs). To give precious real estate to critical ASICs and processors, the power supplies are often allocated to the corner or edge of the board. To compensate for the resistive drop of power path, remote sensing is often used – especially for low-voltage, high-current applications.
