re: Making beautiful music with smart MEMS microphones

MEMS microphones are almost replacing the condenser microphones. Mems can be integrated,compact and with stands more vibrations without performance degradation.Also they are manufactured within plus minus 3 db sensitivity which means less difficulty for the manufacturers to test their products for its uniformity. The analog devices makes it with 62-dB (typical) signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), 20-kg and 160-dB mechanical and sound-pressure shocks, respectively, and power supply rejection ratios (PSRRs) of 80 dB (digital version) and 50 dB (analog version).

I'm looking forward to improved feedback systems in noise cancelling headphones. Who knows, maybe they will be able to design a product that cancels noise over the full frequency range, not just "airplane noise".

I agree. I got the chance to test some MEMS microphones from Wolfston last year. I compared them to the standard Electret microphones and there was no comparison. The MEMS are far superior, lighter and more sensitive. There is no doubt in my mind that Electrets are dead. If your product isn't using MEMS, then your customers will want better. Just my opinion.

In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
