Knowles Acoustics expanded its SMD product line by releasing a "Zero-Height" SMD microphone. The surface mount capability of this addition to the SiSonic® product line, makes it ideally suited for mobile phones and other applications where minimal component height is required on one side of the customer's PCB.
Designed for space-sensitive applications, the Zero-Height SMD microphone mounts under the pc board, allowing for a tight spacing between the board and the outer housing of the product. It offers a unique technology by developing a solder connection between the microphone and the customer's PCB to achieve an acoustic seal around the port hole, thus reducing costs and simplifying mechanical and acoustical design.
