How to increase the +/-165A rms current limit to 250A+ rms (350-400A peak)

Hello,

I would like to create a version of the VESC board with different, low voltage fets that can handle higher current. Could you outline the steps to achieve this? I'm not an EE but have a decent understanding of things. I understand the HW firmware has no soft current limits, that's very helpful. I also understand the DRV has its own Vds OCP, which may need to be tweaked.... but not sure how or how it translates to the code change or where (lol). I also see that there is current scaling of 10V/V or 40V/V. I imagine something as simple as changing the shunt, GAIN pin, and hopefully a couple lines of code, which hopefully someone more capable than me could very kindly accomplish for me or point me in the right direction.

Thanks,

EV
