InvenSense™ Introduces Industry’s Highest Performance Top Port MEMS Analog Microphone

65 dB SNR with Low-Power Mode for ‘AlwaysOn’ Applications

BARCELONA, Spain — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 25, 2014InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE: INVN), the leading provider of MotionTracking system on chip (SoC) and Sound devices, announces the InvenSense ICS-40161 top port MEMS microphone targeted towards mobile electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, remote controls, smart TVs, Bluetooth headsets, and digital still/video cameras. The new InvenSense ICS-40161 top port microphone provides the same performance as the previously announced ICS-40160 bottom port microphone. The availability of both a top and bottom port microphone provides customers maximum flexibility in mechanical and acoustical design.

Contextual awareness is driving the need for low-power ‘AlwaysOn’ sensors. The ICS-40161 microphone meets this challenge with its ‘AlwaysOn’ mode, while offering 65 dB SNR, high Acoustic Overload Point (AOP), and excellent matching in high performance mode.
