PRODUCTS: Akustica's system-on-chip solutions empower a new generation of digital products to interact more naturally with the world around them. Through a revolutionary technology known as Sensory Silicon™, Akustica products enable cellphones, laptops, and other electronic products to speak, hear, and feel.
Microphone Chips Akustica microphone chips range from low profile surface mount replacements for today's conventional analog microphones, to sophisticated digitial microphones that set new standards for noise suppression, directionality, and other advanced acoustic features made possible by on- chip signal processing.
Speaker Chips The higher fidelity, smaller size and lower power requirements of Akustica speaker chips will improve the performance of cell phones, hearing aids, PDAs and other personal products. In industries such as automotive, medical and defense, manufacturers will be able to incorporate new acoustic features to make their products interact more naturally and effectively with people.
Integrated Sensor Chips Akustica's exclusive MEMS technology allows us to add inertial, proximity and even RF sensing capabilities to our microphone and speaker chips. These sophisticated multi-function systems on a chip will enable manufacturers to create products with simpler, more natural human interfaces – products like phones and PDAs that respond to the user's natural movements and gestures, and notebook computers that automatically detect impacts and protect hard drives.
