Recent Projects

For the past 12 years Microprocessor Designs has been working with Concept2, in Morrisville, Vermont.  They are the world's leading provider of indoor rowers and performance oars.   The group has been designing the electronics, firmware, support software and functional/unit level testers for the Performance Monitor series of products.   These include the PM3, PM4 and newly released PM5 models.   Devices have sophisticated graphical user interfaces in multiple languages, varied communication methods including RS485, USB Device, USB Host, ANT, and Bluetooth Low Energy, which enable the device to be used around the globe.  



Riddell has released the Insite Impact Response System, a new integrated technology specifically designed to monitor and record significant head impacts sustained during football activity.   Working with the teams at Riddell and Simbex, Microprocessor Designs was brought in to review the Player Unit and the Alert Monitor for increased reliability, serviceability and manufacturability.     We redesigned both units, designed integrated manufacturing testers  and helped transfer the design to the contract manufacturer.  The system has received a Gold 2014 Edison Award.

Biom Personal Bionics is currently producing the PowerFoot BiOMô, the first bionic lower leg that emulates  muscle function to allow the amputee to walk without stress.   Working as a team with the development engineers at Biom, Microprocessor Designs designed 3 circuit assemblies which include multiple DSPs responsible for algorithmic, inertial and brushless DC motor control.  The system enables the prosthetic to provide energy during each step and helps the amputee to achieve natural movement and higher quality of life.

We also worked on the highly integrated finger tips used in the DARPA Revolutionizing Prosthetics 2009 Project.
