Protect a Vehicle-Reverse Camera

The circuit in this Design Idea uses a simple comparator circuit to make a power-on time delay for an automotive rear view camera. Auto manufacturers typically power reverse-view cameras from the reverse-light circuit. In automatic-transmission vehicles, a short power pulse is applied to the camera when you shift through reverse as you go from park […]

Soft Start For Torch – Increases The Life Of Torch Bulbs

The halogen or krypton bulbs in modern torches (USA and Canada: flashlights) have a limited life and are not particularly cheap. A simple modification in the torch lengthens the life appreciably. It is a fact of nature that any incandescent bulb has a finite life. However, the bulbs in modern torches (US and Canada: flashlight) […]
