InvenSense Introduces Industry’s First 74 dB SNR Analog MEMS Microphone Enabling Far Field Audio Capture

ICS-40730 targets teleconferencing, voice controlled home and IoT products

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 4, 2017-- InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE:INVN), a leading provider of MEMS sensor platforms, today announced the world’s first 74 dB signal-to-noise (SNR) MEMS microphone for far field audio applications such as teleconference systems, voice controlled home and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The analog-output ICS-40730 delivers 74 dB SNR performance in a bottom port surface mount package. There are a growing number of applications that require reliable far field voice capture capability, such as speech recognition, key word detection, voice command, and high quality voice communications. The ICS-40730 addresses the stringent requirements of these applications by providing very low noise audio capture to beamforming and audio processing algorithms, improving the performance of the overall system.

“The ICS-40730 is the highest SNR MEMS microphone in the industry and has been developed to meet the growing demands of high performance audio in markets such as home automation and the Internet of Things,” said Eitan Medina, vice president marketing and product management at InvenSense. “We continue to focus on the development of high performance innovative products that improve end user experience and empower new and exciting use cases.”

The 74 dB SNR MEMS microphone compliments the InvenSense portfolio of performance leading MEMS microphones. InvenSense’s existing ICS-40720, the world’s only 70 dB SNR MEMS microphone has been shipping in volume for over two years.

InvenSense’s ICS-40730 is now available for limited sampling and will be in mass production in Q3 2017. The product is packaged in a standard bottom port configuration. InvenSense is exhibiting in booth #31420 in South Hall 3 at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada from January 5 - 8, 2017. To schedule press and partner meetings at the show, contact pr@invensense.com.
