Vesper, a designer of advanced acoustic-sensing technology, today announced a partnership with AAC Technologies Holdings Inc., a miniature technologies solution provider, for the commercialization of the world’s first piezoelectric MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) microphones for consumer electronic devices.
Vesper’s first piezoelectric MEMS microphone will be integrated into AAC Technologies’ product portfolio of innovative solutions for fast-moving consumer electronics markets, such as smartphones, tablets, wearables and Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices.
“Since the first MEMS microphones were introduced more than ten years ago, the market has exploded into a high-growth global industry exceeding US$1B annually,” said Jack Duan, COO, AAC Technologies. “We believe there is an opportunity to introduce high-performance microphones that are immune from common environmental contaminants such as water, shock and dust. These attributes make Vesper’s technology an excellent choice for device companies that want to deliver a rich, immersive acoustic experience.”
Vesper’s microphones also feature very high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and very low noise, delivering outstanding acoustic performance for a wide range of applications.
“Our relationship with AAC Technologies will allow us to deliver reliable, stable and acoustically satisfying MEMS microphones for the vast and still-growing very high-performance MEMS microphone market,” said Matt Crowley, CEO, Vesper. “With a track record of innovation in acoustic solutions, a mature worldwide distribution channel, and a customer base that includes many of the world’s top-tier mobile-device manufacturers, AAC Technologies is an ideal partner for Vesper.”
