Hi SiCguru,

Modules with integrated shunts offer a space saving alternative of high accurate current measurement with good heat dissipation.
You don't need to think about the heating of the PCB by the shunt.
It is directly connected to the heatsink via the module.
Shunt modules are named with an ""I"" as a first letter.
You can for example search for an IFF... or IFS module.
Alternatively you can use the filter and choose the option "Current sense shunts" in the section "Features" like shown on the picture below:
4094.attach
More information can be found on www.infineon.com/econo.
