MEMS Mic Enables High-End Portable Recording

Infineon Technologies AG and Zylia, a Poland-based developer of recording technologies, enable a portable recording studio via the integration of Infineon’s 69-dB SNR digital MEMS microphone into the Zylia ZM-1 microphone array. Providing a unique approach to music recording, the 19-capsule microphone array with 24-bit resolution allows users to record entire sound scenes with just one microphone. Equipped with XENSIV silicon microphones, the microphone array is capable of high-fidelity and far-field audio recording.


The XENSIV silicone microphones from Infineon feature low self-noise, wide dynamic range, low distortion, and a high acoustic overload point. In addition, the Zylia Studio dedicated application for the ZM-1 enables separation of instruments and vocal tracks from the overall recorded sound mixture.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


As a third-order Ambisonics audio recorder, the ZM-1 is also viable for 360-degree and virtual reality (VR) audio production. Zylia supports these workflows with its Zylia Studio PRO and Zylia Ambisonics Converter software. They offer sound engineers and VR enthusiasts more control over the recording process and greater post-processing capabilities.
