Hi guys,

I am trying to make a simple sensefet design for a buck converter, the problem is that my Vsen amplitude does not vary with respect to the inductor current of the buck.

I have used a Folded Cascode Amplifier (A=91dB BW=8Mhz phase=78) for the OpAmp. Is this enough to be used in the sensing circuit? Can anyone suggest on what may be the problem for my sensing circuit.

Have you tested your Folded Cascode Amplifier indepentently from rest of the circuit?

yes i have independently tested it...I have tested it for the specs above...from what i have read those are the ones i should be looking out for...are there any other reasons why my sensefet won't work?

i attached my sensefet configuration here
