Process

ECT was responsible for the full electronic R&D process including hardware, software, regulatory approvals and implementation in the factory. The client engaged with another partner for industrial design and visual identity.

Challenge

The client wanted to create a device for smart and simple recording of phone calls. He had the idea, but without any skills or knowledge to electronics or product development, he needed assistance with the entire process from the very first feasibility studies to installing the product in a factory for mass production. Implementing 2 simultaneous unsynchronized Bluetooth connections, turned out to be a special challenge – both on RF level and on data processing level.

Solution

Starting with a basic feasibility study, the key components were identified and defined. The device should be able to connect to any GSM telephone and any Bluetooth headset on the market. This requirement calls for a substantial market survey as well as a quite complex test process of the final product. All calls should be routed through the device and only when hitting the button, the conversations should be recorded. With recorded conversations, the device should be connected to any PC/MAC through USB to automatic upload of recorded files.

ECT developed the entire electronics, including software and hardware. Testing and debugging was also carried out by ECT. Tests conducted were both functional field trials and tests in an independent lab for regulatory approval. Lastly, the product was implemented in a factory for mass production.
