xMEMS launch new seminar series: xMEMS live – China 2023
Semiconductor pioneer xMEMS Labs has announced the launch of xMEMS Live – China 2023, a two-day seminar aimed at demonstrating the company’s ongoing support for Chinese consumer tech and audio brands through product demos, keynotes, and in-depth tech-talk presentations that will take place on 18th September 2023 at the Renaissance Caohejing Hotel in Shanghai and on 20th September 2023 at the Westin Nanshan in Shenzhen.
The announcement comes at a time when xMEMS is accelerating its global expansion to provide a growing customer base with advanced solid-state MEMS speakers for integration into True Wireless Stereo (TWS), In-Ear Monitor (IEM), hearing assistance, and other personal audio devices. The seminar will feature xMEMS’ executives and engineering leaders who will review best practices for achieving end-product design success with xMEMS’ ground-breaking Solid-State Fidelity Solutions.
“xMEMS is reinventing the way people experience sound through the world’s only all-silicon, monolithic MEMS micro speakers for personal audio products,” said Mike Housholder, VP of Marketing and Business Development of xMEMS. “With its dynamic tech ecosystem and strong audio manufacturing base, China represents a significant growth opportunity for the company as we continue to scale. xMEMS Live – China 2023 is an extraordinary way to engage with the brightest minds in this robust market to fully capitalise on our growth potential and solidify xMEMS’ position as the world leader in silicon-based MEMS speaker technology.”
xMEMS’ patented silicon-based speaker technology is slated to replace century-old coil speakers, allowing for high-volume, reliable mass production of solid-state speakers using semiconductor fabrication methods and resulting in more precise, higher fidelity, high-resolution audio.
Unlike conventional coil speakers, xMEMS speakers are monolithic with silicon membranes which offer 95x better material stiffness, leading to improved clarity and eliminating the muddy midrange and treble response created by traditional speaker membrane materials.
The silicon architecture also operates with a 150x faster impulse response compared with conventional speakers to allow for the most pulse-true and accurate sound reproduction, which is not possible with the slow attack and decay of coil architectures.
Following its first product collaboration with Creative Technologies, a TWS earbud manufacturer in Singapore, xMEMS is continuing to accelerate customer momentum in key markets around the world, with new customer announcements slated for later this year.
“As manufacturers try to stand out in the market and streamline their production efforts, xMEMS is uniquely positioned to deliver exceptional sound quality, comfort, and style to consumers, while our customers benefit from the inherent efficiencies unlocked by our world-first solid state semiconductor manufacturing process, which delivers a better sounding speaker with far greater production efficiency and product uniformity,” Housholder concluded.
