Re: Dashcam PSU problems
@HughVartanian---Nice use of a piece of electronics gear no longer used! I have boxes full of things like that as I am sure many of our readers do as well.

 

This might be a good blog topic for Planet Analog!

Dashcam PSU problems
I had an issue with my dashcam lighter-plug power supply however in my case it interfered with the FM reception, particularly for somewhat distant stations.  I grabbed a no-longer-in-service phone charger plug, cut the phone plug off and spliced it to the dashcam power cord.  Worked fine.  Found a use for an old charger too!

Re: Dashcam Store
Hi Max---thanks for that added information for our audience---I read that EETimes article----nice!

I think that, being a 'geek' circuit designer like you, I jumped at the chance to help solve a problem, especially since I had recently written a Product review on EDN of the power solution I gave to Bob.

I am happy that our audience can now fully understand what the DashCamStore has to offer to its customers in the way of products and service.

Re: Dashcam Store
Hi Steve -- Max here -- the article to which David refers was Shoot! What's the Dash Cam Say? ( eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=216&doc_id=1331491 )

Katie from the DashCamStore offered some very useful advice in the comments to this article, including pointing me at this buyers guide ( thedashcamstore.com/buyers-guide/ )

As David said, my impression is that the folks at the DashCamStore are eager to help.

Dashcam Store
Max the Magnificent did a recent story on Dashcams and (I think, I can't find it) mentioned the Dashcam Store, who otherwise seem to be a highly professional outfit.  Have you tried contacting them about this?  The seemed the kind of outfit that would find a solution for you (not that you need one now, but you'd be doing other customers a service if this problem was sorted out)

Dashcam PSU problems
Thanks for the story Steve and the reference to the synchronous convertor eval kit.  A great extension to this article would be a tear-down and analysis of the offending convertor to see what they did wrong to cause such high conducted and radiated emissions.
