dc current amplifier

dc current amplifier

(OP)
I need help in creating a dc current amplifier.  The current/voltage source would be a battery.  The amplifier could be multi-staged.  I would like the output current to be in the range of 50 - 100mA, and the input current being in the range of 5 -10 mA.  Could someone make a recommendation of what type of amplifier circuit would be best suited for my needs?  Resources would be helpful too.  Thank you very much.

RE: dc current amplifier

How much voltage drop can you afford on the sense R ?

Is the sense resistor in the GND or in the + or - supply line or floating ?

How much accuracy do you need ?

Is trimming/adjustment/resistor selection acceptable ?

If the output is processed by microcomputer, it can store the calibration factor, too.

Selecting business software for a medium to enterprise-sized construction concern is extremely challenging in large part because most enterprise resource planning (ERP) suites originated in the world of repetitive manufacturing and are therefore a poor fit for a project and asset-centric business. However, midsize to large contractors need the predictable, auditable processes that ERP delivers. Download Now
