MEMS mics are used in a large percentage of modern mobile phones and are being introduced into hearing aids. The biggest player right now is Knowles, a traditional transducer maker. Many semi companies are hot on their heels.

I'm not sure if the MEMS microphones are really common or not, but soon MEMS will take over many technologies and could provide much better performance at smaller size and lesser cost.

Just to understand how the silicon MEMS microphone technology of VTT compares itself with existing MEMS microphone options, is it possible to get some data? e.g. S/N ratio (?)dB...etc.?

Another way of saying the same thing is that it may be able to produce adequate performance in less area of silicon thereby making listening/direction-finding arrays lower cost to produce. But we need more detail.

Low noise means high S/N ratio. With this if it will provide the fidelity and low distortion levels at a reasonable price tag the product will become commercially successful .

Why Connect a Car?
May 11, 1pm EDT Monday
Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
