Current Measurement on Cyclone 10 GX Development Kit

Hello, I am studying how the Current Measurement was done on the Cyclone 10GX Development kit. I'm looking at the schematics page 38 and I don't understand what the Sense Pad V1 is and I don't see it on the BOM list. If anyone is familiar with this measurement please let me know the purpose of the SENSE PAD and how would one put it on a design? 

 

Thanks, 

Joe

Hi Joe, 

 

According to my view. 

Sense lines are part of 4wire measurements. 4Wire (force, force sense, ground and ground sense) measurement is more accurate in parametric measurements(Example: FIMV). 

1. SENSE PAD here may be used for probing or act as a cuttable trace or to place a component for experimenting. 

2. Sense lines are high impedance lines because of which we can get accurate measurements.
