Montara Series

The World’s First True MEMS Full Range Microspeaker

Cowell Series

The World’s Smallest MEMS Microspeaker

Tomales Series

The World’s First True MEMS Tweeter

Features

xMEMS has produced the industry’s first monolithic TRUE MEMS speakers, eclipsing early hybrid-MEMS speakers by implementing the entire speaker (actuator and membrane) in silicon, reducing package height and eliminating driver matching and calibration due to inherent variability in traditional membrane assembly.

Through the combination of design innovation and monolithic capacitive piezo-MEMS manufacturing, xMEMS delivers a new level of performance, size, energy efficiency and uniformity not possible with traditional voice coil or hybrid MEMS approaches.

Sound Quality
  • Full bandwidth (20Hz-20kHz) with flat frequency response for occluded applications
  • High performance tweeter or midrange-tweeter for open/leaky applications
  • +/-1° phase consistency for improved spatial audio performance
  • No in-band resonances
  • Superior high-frequency response vs. coil speakers improves:
    • Clarity
    • Presence
    • Speech-in-noise performance for hearing health applications
  • 0.5% THD (94dB @ 1kHz)
  • Better SPL/mm3
Robustness
  • Monolithic piezoMEMS 10,000g mechanical shock resistance
Consistency
  • Highly uniform frequency response and phase
  • Reliable semiconductor process (JEDEC-qualified)
  • Eliminates driver matching and calibration
Longer listen times
  • Capacitive vs. current-driven architecture reduces driver power consumption
Water-proof
  • IP58 water immersion and dust resistance without special membrane
Precise Transduction
  • Monolithic design eliminates spring and suspension recovery of coil-based speakers
  • Fast mechanical response (<50μs group delay) enables improved ANC bandwidth of nonstationary noise
  • Near-zero phase delay increases maximum noise suppression bandwidth of stationary noise
Implementation
  • World’s First SMT-ready microspeaker
  • Companion piezo amplifier IC (xMEMS Aptos)
Small size
  • 1mm thickness
  • More space for larger batteries or more components
  • Top or Side-firing package orientations
  • 6mm ɸ (side-firing)
