Performing high fidelity current measurements without introducing parasitics into the circuit is challenging. The M-shunt concept is coming one step closer to an ideal solution. It merges the best characteristics of the coaxial-shunt and the hairpin- shunt. The M-shunt concept offers the possibility to produce a shunt, which introduces a low inductance into the load circuit, which has a good signal fidelity, which is potentially easy to cool, and which is simple to manufacture, i. e. cost efficient. Several different M-shunt structures were designed on a printed circuit board and were investigated by DC- and pulsed measurements.
