Tokyo Japan, March 14, 2014- New Japan Radio Co., Ltd. (New JRC) today announced that it has shipped its 100 millionth MEMS*1 transducer for microphones.
New JRC produces and sells MEMS transducers for microphone well-suitable for smart phone and tablet PCs. We started mass production of MEMS transducer in March 2013, and have shipped 100 millionth MEMS transducer in this February.
New JRC produces MEMS transducers using our favorite semiconductor manufacturing technology.A combination of MEMS transducer and our audio amplifier can provide an easy matching of microphone module characteristics.
Compared with ECM*2, MEMS microphone has superior heat‐resistance which makes it possible mounting by automatic machine.
Therefore, employing cases replacing ECM with MEMS are becoming increasingly popular.
