Knowles' Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology platform brings you smaller product design possibilities and related cost advantages, including silicon-based, surface mount manufacturing.
Traditional uses of silicon involve creating pathways for electricity within components such as integrated circuits. In contrast, MEMS transforms silicon into mechanically moving parts. During the past decade, this process has become useful in an increasing number of industries. For example, the automotive market uses MEMS accelerometers to sense crashes and deploy airbags.
Our research in MEMS led to the introduction of the world's first surface mount microphone in 2001 to 2002, the SiSonic™ series. We have since helped major brands design breakthrough cell phone and consumer electronics products, while eliminating the cost of traditional offline ECM microphone subassemblies.
