iPod Nano 6G Costs $43.73 to Manufacture

No comments:



iSuppli has examined the new iPod Nano 6G and determined its Bill-of-Materials amounts to an estimated $43.73 for the 8GB version.

The 8GByte version of the latest iPod carries an estimated BOM of $43.73, iSuppli’s teardown analysis of the product has revealed. This gives the sixth generation product the second-lowest BOM of all members of the iPod line. Based on iSuppli teardowns of the low-end versions of all six iPod generations, only the fourth generation product had a less expensive BOM at the time of its introduction, at $40.80.

"Instead of piling on features, as so many brands do with their latest products, Apple with the sixth-generation iPod has maintained or even removed some attributes in order to fit the form factor and function desired," said Andrew Rassweiler, director and principal analyst and teardown services manager, for iSuppli. "This has enabled Apple to offer the smallest iPod including a touch screen, while keeping component costs to a strict budget.

The iPod Nano 6G retails for $149. Hit the link below for a more detailed breakdown of the components and suppliers.

Digital Oscilloscope and Signal Generator

1 comment:



ONYX Apps has introduced Oscilloscope 1.0 for iOS, their low cost Oscilloscope & Signal Generator app. Designed to plot audio signals, monitor equipment, analyze events, and test circuits, it is also an excellent learning tool. Input signals are acquired via the built in microphone or an external device connected to the microphone input. Its GUI includes many standard oscilloscope controls, such as: triggering, time and voltage per division, signal measurement cursors, and more. The app also incorporates a signal (function) generator capable of generating sine, square, triangle, and sawtooth waveforms of up to 22 KHz. Calibration to an external reference signal is supported, guaranteeing the accuracy of measurements.

Most of the existing PC and iPhone/iPad "oscilloscopes" gather data via the audio input of the sound card. This leads to their major limitation compared to a real scope: since a typical audio input generally employs a 48 KHz sampling rate, these apps can only analyze signals of about 20 Hz to 20 KHz. Despite this limitation, Oscilloscope is perfectly suitable for analyzing audio, measuring low frequency signals, or learning oscilloscope measurement basics. Another useful function is the built-in waveform generator which can be used to create reference signals.

Input is typically acquired via the built-in microphone or a probe connected to the headset connector. (When connecting external sources via probes, users must not exceed 1-volt input.) For best results one could use an external accessory such as a dock connector input device for the iPhone/iPod touch, or USB audio input such as Griffin iMic for the iPad.

Feature Highlights:
* Real-time waveform display (60 FPS)
* Triggering modes: Normal, Auto, Single
* Set trigger level and pre-trigger time
* Built-in function generator
* Reference signal calibration
* Pause function to get a screen capture
* Measure signal data using cursors
* Use "finger pinch" on screen to set voltage and time base
* Double tap screen to enter Black Panel mode
* Four color themes to choose from
* Retina display support

Oscilloscope's GUI is integrated into the signal display window. Two windows in the upper left of the screen display the X and Y scales in time per division and volts per division. These can be incremented using horizontal and vertical pinch gestures. There are five icons in the upper right of the screen: Measure shows/hides measuring cursors and window; Trigger shows/hides trigger controls; Function shows/hides signal generator; Calibration shows/hides calibration window; and Colors allows selection of a color theme. A Play/Pause button on the lower right starts/stops data acquisition, and can be used to make a still screen capture of any waveform displayed.

"Though its frequency range is somewhat limited, Oscilloscope 1.0 is an extremely affordable, digital oscilloscope and signal generator," stated company CEO Eugene Klein. "It's a great way to learn the basics of signals measurement before investing a lot in a dedicated test device."

Pricing and Availability:
Oscilloscope 1.0 is $11.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category. Review copies are available upon request.

Evidence of Two New iPhone Models Found in Apple TV Firmware

No comments:



Evidence of two new iPhone devices have been found in the just released Apple TV firmware.

The iPhone 4 is referred to as iPhone3,1 by Apple. However, the Apple TV firmware contains references to iPhone3,2 and iPhone 3,3.

These references suggest iPhone 4 devices with minor hardware revisions such as possibly a CDMA version or a device with modifications to the antenna. A major hardware revision would be denoted by iPhone 4,1.

It's also possible that Apple is not planning a major hardware upgrade for next year's iPhone. This would be similar to minor changes made from the iPhone 2G to the iPhone 3G which were respectively denoted as the iPhone1,1 and the iPhone1,2.

There is also an unknown device numbered 20547 that can be seen in the screenshot below.
