The definition of smart in the context of a current sense resistor would be an integrated component solution to transmit a continuous stream of data via a preferred protocol (i.e. CAN, I2C, SPI) providing the status of Vf (V), current (I) and element temperature (°C) at any given time. The smart current sense technology would sense early current fault condition and protect the load from potential damage.
Demands from component technology are evolving. By linking technology concepts with current and future market trends, we can explore what we may require from passive component technology in the coming years.
