re: Akustica develops two-chip analog MEMS microphone

Akustica invented the elegant single chip MEMS microphone solution with a digital interface. The point of this new analog model is that its analog--the ASIC has analog amplifier and conditioning circuitry, but the interface is analog, because cell phone makers are only interesting in price, not quality, so refuse to update their designs for a microphone with a digital interface.

It is very good option of packaging Analog Transducer along with digital interface, as this reduced the level of expertise required at the time of electronic product design and more better experienced analog designers can put values in the transducer. This is the reason why this kind of products are very widely accepted across the industry.
