InvenSense, Inc. and Sonion A/S Announce Strategic Microphone Development Alliance
Mar 27 14
InvenSense, Inc. and Sonion A/S announced a strategic alliance in which the two parties will cooperate in the development of MEMS microphones and related technologies for use in a broad range of hearing applications. InvenSense will bring its extensive MEMS knowledge, MEMS microphone portfolio and R&D resources to the partnership. Sonion will contribute with its in depth insight into development of high performance microphones, R&D resources and its highly specialized Application Engineering function addressing the hearing health market. Sonion will have exclusive rights to sell InvenSense MEMS microphone products into hearing aids for hearing health. InvenSense will be Sonion's primary source of MEMS microphone products and related technologies, while InvenSense will continue to sell MEMS microphones into other hearing/microphone applications. As the demand for MEMS solutions for hearing aids, hearing aid accessories, assistive listening/alerting and signaling system continues to rise, this alliance will have the joint benefit of accelerating both technology and customer access to bring the higher performance MEMS microphone technology to the hearing aid industry.
