what is a bte platform
What is a BTE platform ?
  • Hardware used by several different models
  • Used by multiple brands
  • Same hardware – lower costs
  • MX60, PL60, RP60, One65, LQ65 already use same hardware, just no name for the platform.
  • Configurable as needed.
  • Same hardware for different price points.
paris platform
Paris platform
  • With Paris we have taken the concept a step further.
  • Complete collection of modules for Power BTE, BTE and miniBTE
  • Paris70 is here now.
  • Paris60 and Paris80 will follow shortly.
  • First appearance for Paris70 will be in AZ71-DVI.
  • For Beltone used in the Phantom models.
  • Different housing parts, same “engine”
the paris modules
The Paris modules
  • First FormFactor size ready is the BTE (Paris70)
  • Idea of platforms is to make manufacturing and service easy and cost optimized.
  • Keep flexibility for models and brands.
  • Modules can be mounted with different housing parts in Xiamen - for branding.
  • Modules can be loaded with different software in Xiamen – for pricing.
  • Colors can be changed to order in subsidiaries.
  • Complete color kits are available from GDC.
platform requirements paris
Platform requirements (Paris)
  • Prepared for rechargeable batteries.
  • Charging from outside
  • Both for open and standard fitting (standard and thin tubes).
  • Telecoil included.
  • C3 hybrid platform (probably 3.1).
  • Wireless prepared (agreed size).
  • Prepared for C4 and C4 wireless (functionality to be excluded no VC in 70 wireless e.g.).
  • Color marker and Child lock.
  • Programming via programming shoe.
  • DAI interface.
  • Available in Standard and new colors.
  • Dummy devices must be available at launch date.

Supposed to be the mechanically platform from which a traditional BTE HI is to be derived for Both the Resound and Beltone brand in the 60,70,80 form factor.

Part Communality

Design Communality

  • High reuse of parts.
  • High degree of modularity.
  • Size could be a compromise (60-70-80) same size.
  • Fast time to market.
  • Production tools limited.
  • Stability experience can be reused.
  • Common design elements.
  • Part reuse limited
  • New frames for each form factor is needed.
  • Tool design principles can be reused
  • More tools required (almost the triple).
  • Size cannot be compromise.
  • This was chosen for Paris
