Smart Speaker – Smart MEMS Loudspeaker for Mobile Applications

Goal of this research project is the development of MEMS-based, smart audio reproduction systems for mobile devices. These systems, although small in size, provide high acoustical performance with low energy consumption and low-cost production. This innovative concept comprises high-efficiency MEMS-actuators to drive a loudspeaker membrane, which achieve an optimal performance by means of smart signal processing.
