Infineon's Digital MEMS Technology Enables Microphone Array
Infineon Technologies AG and
Zylia, a Poland-based developer of recording technologies, have enabled the
world's first portable recording studio. The integration of Infineon's
class-leading 69dB SNR digital MEMS microphone into the Zylia ZM-1 microphone
array provides a new approach to music recording. The 19-capsule microphone
array with high-end 24-bit recording resolution allows users to record entire
sound scenes with just one microphone. Equipped with XENSIV silicon
microphones, the microphone array delivers high-fidelity and
far-field audio recording. In addition, it provides multi microphone noise- and
distortion-free audio signals for advanced audio signal processing.
are committed to developing new technologies and transforming them into
products capable of improving the lives of musicians and audio creatives," says
Tomasz Å»ernicki, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Zylia. "Infineon is
a partner we can trust to deliver the innovative, high-quality solutions that
help power our development of such products."
digital sound processing algorithms and microphone array technology make the
Zylia ZM-1 a sophisticated recording solution in a lightweight enclosure. The
XENSIV silicone microphones from Infineon feature with their low self-noise,
wide dynamic range, low distortion and a high acoustic overload point. In
addition, the Zylia Studio dedicated application for the ZM-1 enables
separation of instruments and vocal tracks from the overall recorded sound
MEMS technology addresses the needs of the market and makes future use cases
like Zylia's possible," says Oliver Henning, Head of Partnership Management of the
Power Management & Multimarket Division at Infineon. "Infineon is very
excited about partnering with Zylia in its mission to jointly enable millions
of musicians around the world to achieve the next level of audio recordings."
third-order Ambisonics audio recorder, the ZM-1 is also suitably robust for
360-degree and virtual reality (VR) audio production. Zylia supports these
workflows with its new Zylia Studio PRO and Zylia Ambisonics Converter
software. They offer sound engineers and VR enthusiasts more control over the
recording process and greater post-processing capabilities.
