MEMS Microphone
Presented by:
Briliant Adhi Prabowo

What is microphone?
Microphone is a device to detect acoustic signal
to electric signal.
- To be amplified.
- To be transmitted.
- To be processed. (audio processing)
- To be stored.
Natural microphone = EAR
Difficult to be transmitted,
stored, processed, amplified
Sound is mechanical wave that oscillated in frequency range around 20 Hz - 20 kHz.
(Audio frequency)
Infrasonic < 20 Hz
Ultrasonic > 20 kHz
- Sound vibrates membrane.
- Membrane convert the vibration to electrical signal
Acoustic vibration to
electrical signal
MEMS Microphone
Microphone device - integrated in a single chip - fabricated using CMOS technology.
Previous technology : electret condensor microphones (ECS) - assembled from discrete parts.
Type of MEMS Microphones

Analog MEMS Microphones

convert a sound pressure input into an analog voltage output.

Digital MEMS Microphones
convert a sound pressure input into a digital output signal, typically in pulse density
modulation format (PDM).
MEMS Microphone Principle
- There is a voltage between membrane and back-plate.
- A capacitance is occurred in membrane-plate.
- Membrane is vibrated by sound wave.
- Capacitance value is varies.
- Capacitance value is converted to voltage.

Usually MEMS microphone
is integrated with FET device.
MEMS Microphone Device Structure
Digital output of MEMS Microphone
-Amplifier and ADC in the same chip.
- Signal is modulated usually by PDM technique. (Pulse Density Modulation)
- Mono or Stereo option.
- Multiplexing option is available.
Human voice range : 300 and 3000 Hz
