Method for an integrated inductor with a precision current shunt

Disclosed is a method for an integrated inductor with a precision current shunt. Benefits include improved ease of manufacturing, improved design, and improved performance.

Description

� � � � � The disclosed method integrates an inductor and a sense element into a single footprint package using a mounting component (see Figure 1). This design greatly increases the accuracy of central processor unit (CPU) regulation by adding a low-cost sense element without increasing layout space.

Advantages

        � � � � � Some implementations of the disclosed structure and method provide one or more of the following advantages:

•        � � � � Improved ease of manufacturing due to the easy integration of components that in the past have been discrete

•        � � � � Improved design due to a smaller footprint

•        � � � � Improved performance due to the accuracy of the current-sense element

•        � � � � Improved cost effectiveness due to a low-cost mounting component
