The ISL70591SEH and ISL70592SEH ICs are radiation hardened 100µA and 1mA precision constant current sources designed for thermistor and other resistive sensor excitation applications. Their two-terminal floating type topology allows the load to be connected at the high side (+V pin), low side (-V pin), or at both the high and low sides of the current source. It is specifically designed to operate in the harsh environment of space.
The ISL70591SEHEVAL1Z and ISL70592SEHEVAL1Z evaluation boards provide a quick and easy method to evaluate the ISL70591SEH 100µA and ISL70592SEH 1mA current sources. A thorough knowledge of the ISL70591SEH's and ISL70592SEH's operation is required to use this evaluation board properly. Refer to the ISL70591SEH datasheet for information about the devices' function and performance.
