I want to use a load switch for protecting my PCB.

I also want to watch/measure the current drawn by my board.

How can I sense/measure the current drawn by my board, using a load switch like the Microchip UCS3205T-E/Q8A?

I can't find articles about sensing/measuring the load current.

Load switch TPS272C45 by Texas Instruments outputs the current drawn by the load.

SNS is an analog output pin that outputs the analog output current drawn by the load.

Connect a resistor between SNS and GND.


This a selection filter at Texas Instruments in case you want to browse other load switches:
