re: Low self noise: The first step to high-performance MEMS microphone applications

Bandwidth and linearity are each both worthy of their own discussions, but I think that you'll find similar bandwidths of operation for ECMs and MEMS microphones. Many MEMS microphones today have a maximum SPL (clipping point) of about 120 dB. There are certainly ECMs available that are linear to higher SPLs, but again, those are often larger, pro-level devices. I think that we'll start to see more MEMS microphones that are linear to even higher SPLs in the future.

Interesting! What about bandwidth and linearity compared to ECM's?

It doesn't seem all that long ago when I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young engineer. Now I feel like an old fool, but where are we going to find one at this time of the day (LOL)?
