These Knowles mics are terrific for consumer applications. They very sensitive, smaller package, sound great, and have an integrated amplifier. From what I've seen of MEMs oscillators, I seriously doubt there will be an equivalently wonderful MEMS device that revolutionizes the oscillator market.

This is an excellent use of microelectromechanical engineering, even the I have also not heard any Professional Microphone manufacturer using MEMS Microphone, it would be surely giving better sound compared to the present day condenser microphones.

This is good news for MEMS.Looking it the way Apple's business MEMS is also going to make lot of business. Looks like not much competition for MEMs in this area.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
