MEMS Mic Sets Performance Bar Higher

Boston-based startup Vesper has designed a MEMS-based microphone that promises to enhance the user’s acoustic experience with voice capture and sound recording in smartphones, wearables, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The component specifies a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 70 dB SNR. According to the company, current smartphones embed up to five microphones in arrays. Therefore, arrays of low-power, very high SNR microphones, such as Vesper’s, will enable far field audio, dramatically improving sound capture even at longer distances. They provide ambient noise cancellation for recording, or for speaking on the phone, enhancing clarity and intelligibility, and Audio Zoom capability focuses on a single sound source when recording, enabling more accurate sound-selection.
