I'm ahead of the curve, it seems. A few years ago, I used the hall-effect to sense current in a 3-phase DC motor (for a fuel pump on a UAV). It worked out well for the application.

I just finished a current sensing application last Summer.  I've been itching to use a Hall effect since then, but haven't had a chance.  Having an isolated solution with no power draw would have been beautiful on my last product.  NVE has some great products to use, as well as a part that includes a current trace inside the package.

Excellent article. Low cost, good power management and compact design are all compelling advantages for these applications.  Along with the control advantages of course.  Will be interested to see specific applications that can use this technology.

This is exciting. Current sensing is becoming more and more critical in applications requiring the most efficient systems to report back valuable information on loads. I am happy to see there are companies out there gaining interest in this sort of IP so I would forecast a step towards increased resource conservation. Considering how efficient EV's and self-sustaining industrial buildings have become in recent years, the sensor market can only be breaching the threshold of impressive expansion; since most cars on the road still pollute with combustion engines and many factories herein carry the same output characteristics, I would be surprised if this market picks up speed.

What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Procurement actually means well. There is no question that procurement can do a better job of phrasing their questions or making connections between engineering’s goals and the processes underway. And if you are using the right deciphering code, the result can live up to -- or surpass -- your expectations.
Internal combustion engines are ruling power generation applications even today, and improvising them to churn out every slice of power is still an area of research for the engineering community.
If you are interested in adding FPGA technology to you engineering toolkit, grab some free tools and an evaluation kit and get started on your own FPGA project. It never hurts to expand your engineering toolbox, and FPGAs are only going to become more popular over the next few years.
With the growing demand for new-age applications, corrosion has become an inherent problem. Not only do epoxies confer excellent corrosion resistance, they are also easy to handle and process. However, one must be mindful of selecting the right epoxy system along with the appropriate application techniques for best results.
