Knowles Acoustics and MEMSCAP Form Strategic Partnership
ITASCA, Ill. - Knowles Acoustics announced it has chosen MEMSCAP as a source for the manufacture of its silicon microphones' MEMS wafers.
Knowles selected MEMSCAP North Carolina facility as a source of its MEMS silicon microphone wafers. The SiSonic microphone takes advantage of semi-conductor manufacturing processes that result in a microphone that yields a high degree of repeatability, stable acoustic performance and flexibility for future design enhancements.
The success of its SiSonic silicon microphones that are today in cellular phones, PDAs, MP3 recorders, and digital cameras makes Knowles Acoustics a worldwide provider of applied MEMS acoustic components, with a global addressable market size that exceeds 500 million microphones per year.
