Hi shorty,

You can use a simple modified current mirror, with two ordinary transistors. See the attached PDF file. (Sorry, I couldn't convert it to a directly viewable format).

Your current limits are both shown;
Vcc is 5V;
The current source is your sensor;
The 1k resistor can accomodate any value to interface to your sensor;
The circuit is relatively temperature independent;

I hope it helps...

Regards,

__JR__
