Under the hood
A voyage inside the iPod Shuffle
The Shuffle Sylvester dismantled was based around an MP3 decoder chip from SigmaTel and a flash memory chip from Samsung--which means the device uses many fewer chips than hard-drive-based iPods, she wrote.Conclusion: Apple probably having a profit margin of 40% on a 512Mb Shuffle! And will get more when the price of the new chips go down. Not bad at all!
The MP3 decoder, mounted to one board, takes charge of a multitude of functions. Its handles music, including the playing of MP3, AAC and Audible format files. It harbors a USB 2.0 converter, SDRAM for buffering data and a headphone driver.
The chip is capable of handling Windows Media music file decoding and voice recording, and could send images to an LCD screen and work with an FM tuner, she wrote. Those features go unused in the Shuffle, though.
