    Hello All,
    I'm thinking of building this circuit,: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/snls380a/snls380a.pdf for a project I'm doing. I'm still a beginner and I wondered if anyone had done this before and how difficult it is.

    I need to be able to sense when a late model car engine stalls. There are other circuits that do this but are dependent on voltage above 13.5 volts. Many newer vehicles never get to 13.5 with their PWM charging systems. If I understood the information correctly, this circuit will trigger using voltage to sense current.

    Thanks for any and all opinions.
