Together with partners from industry and research, Fraunhofer ISIT is developing a new generation of miniaturized loudspeakers, which are manufactured using silicon technology. In contrast to conventional electrodynamic microspeakers, the new chip loudspeakers are based on powerful piezoelectric MEMS drives and are characterized by high energy efficiency and extremely low manufacturing tolerances. Fields of application are mobile communication devices such as tablets, smartphones and headphones.
