External Microphone GoPro (AAMIC-001) current and voltage limits

Hi guys,

Technical question: I have a AAMIC-001 external mic adapter connected to a GoPro Hero 5. I want to use a sync voltage to synchronise various systems via the 3.5 jack connecter. Does anybody know how much voltage I can safely pipe in without blowing the DAC? Or where I can find the info?

 

Thanks!!

Chris

Hi @chrise365

 

For reference, you may check: https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/HERO5-Black-External-Microphone-Information

 

What is the reserved power bias for external mics?
The reserved power bias for external mics is 2.5V.

 

Thanks!
