Abstract

In this work, we offer a high level view of the difference in performance of three circuit architectures for estimating slowly changing current: the transimpedance amplifier, linear integrator, and integrate and fire. When considering a portable or IoT (Internet of Things) using a microprocessor-based system, we determine architecture trade-offs in performance fo a low-cost implementation. Given the constraints and capabilities of available microprocessor technologies, we provide a comparative analysis of the different architectures' strengths and weaknesses.
