Simply plugging this MP3 player into a car’s cigar lighter socket and tuning to an unused FM radio channel, allows access to all the music stored on a separate USB drive. The use of external memory keeps cost down and provides flexibility. Minimal memory functions within the unit include last station recall and last song played. In addition to converting the vehicle’s 12V to all the voltages required within the player, the visual feedback portion of the Human Machine Interface (HMI) for selecting one of the 15 pre-set FM stations comes from four 8-segment red LEDs.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
