Reading the datasheet of the MAX17055, I found on page 11 the following example circuit:
It clearly shows a ground symbol at the CSP pin. As far as I understand, the IC directly connects to an external load with SYSPWR to VCC and SYSGND to GND. Since this would imply that the sense resistor is also grounded at the other side, its voltage sits at 0V. The resistor's purpose is the measurement of current flow across itself. But how is this possible when both ends are already at 0V?
