FX Sport – Sports MP3 Player

FX-Sport is an innovator in wearable sports MP3 players. Their product concept required extensive electronics and software development which included challenges of producing a 4 layer PCB measuring only 30mm in diameter. Adding to the challenge, the device needed not just one, but three microprocessors!

On the top side you can see a DSP based Hi-Fi quality stereo codec and a dedicated NAND Flash microcontroller. On the bottom side there’s a 32 bit PIC and an 8GByte NAND Flash.

When plugged into a PC or MAC the MP3 player charges and appears as a conventional 8GByte flash drive. It has a USB 2.0 High Speed interface so that music files (and everything else) syncs at the highest possible speed. When unplugged it becomes an advanced MP3 player with a built in virtual trainer and even a virtual athlete to support the user training programme.

The products are now selling and Coriel is providing technical post-sales support and development of the next generation headsets.

“Having worked now with several electronics design companies, we can safely say Coriel is the best. Coriel designed and optimised the electronic board on our product, as well creating the firmware. The board especially was not a simple task, with space and power constraints. Both firmware and board have proved reliable and resilient. They are currently helping us with further upgraded versions and we are working on a new product with them. They are a team of outstanding individuals who are excellent innovators and trouble shooters. Extremely easy to work with and we will continue to do so”– Duncan Walsh – CEO FX Sport
