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.

New VNA technologies enable mmWave broadband testing to 220 GHz, helping researchers and engineers to overcome test challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

Application development in the mmWave frequencies is growing. Broadband testing over hundreds of GHz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability/accuracy deficits, and engineers demand solutions to help overcome challenges and simplify mmWave testing.


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.
