Emkay launches MEMS microphone

Feb. 4, 2003 — Emkay Innovative Products, a division of Knowles Electronics, said it has launched a microphone based on MEMS technology.

The SiSonic microphone is built using semiconductor processes to create its parts out of silicon. The technique allows for space and cost savings, as well as higher performance and reliability compared to traditional electret condenser microphones, according to a news release.

Emkay said its microphone is suited for use in mobile phones and handheld electronic devices, such as PDAs, MP3 players and digital cameras.
