THD Podcast 63 - xMEMS Disrupting the $10B Speaker Market with Worlds First True MEMS Piezo Speakers THD Podcast

    • Technology

The Total Harmonic Discussion / the THD Podcast. A weekly discussion on audio and headphone technologies and the people who bring the technology to market.

In episode 63, Michael Ricci, Director of Electroacoustic Engineering at xMEMS, joins us to tell us all about the world's first truly piezo MEMS speaker. The xMEMS team of audio and piezo MEMS semiconductor experts are disrupting the $10B speaker market with the first True MEMS speakers. xMEMS addresses in-ear personal audio devices delivering a new combination of audio fidelity, size, energy consumption and uniformity not possible with traditional voice coil or hybrid MEMS approaches.

Until now, the industry has relied on antiquated, centuries-old multi-component voice coil speakers requiring labor-intensive, high variability factory assembly lines. xMEMS leverages semiconductor precision and manufacturing scalability. Micron-level precision and scalability of semiconductor process permits Speaker-to-speaker uniformity and repeatability. The Piezo MEMS drive creates speakers with faster mechanical response than possible with legacy technologies. We are bringing a new era in sound by replacing decades old, manually-assembled, highly-variable voice-coil speaker technology including dynamic drivers and balanced armature drivers, with a high-precision, high consistency, monolithic semiconductor process.
