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 .
