Sensing current on the high side

As EDN's Design Ideas editor, I see a range of design submissions, from good, to not so good. A recent DI I turned down for several reasons included a high-side current sense circuit with implementation problems. This got me thinking about the different ways to accomplish current sensing on a voltage rail. At their heart, the majority of DC current sense circuits start with a resistance in a supply line (th ...
