Next generation digital MEMS loudspeakers by USound

Project description

MEMS technology miniaturises loudspeakers

Tiny speakers based on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) could revolutionise future mobile communication devices, headphones, and hearing aids. However, in the audio world, MEMS technology has only been used to build tiny microphones. Speakers still rely on traditional dynamic design principles. EU funding of the Digital speakers project will enable Austria-based audio start-up company USound GmbH to continue developing breakthrough loudspeakers based on CMOS and MEMS technologies. It is now working on its new product called ‘Kore’, which will exploit MEMS potential to the fullest. With its completely new loudspeaker concepts, USound’s vision is to be at the forefront of the digital transformation of the loudspeaker market.
