Hearing Instrument

At Micromax, we are distributors for high-end Knowles' hearing instrument products.  Our products continue to be at the forefront of design and development for new microphone solutions for hearing aids. The many developments include unidirectional, omnidirectional, matched pairs and combined uni-omni microphone designs. Behind-the-ear, in-the-ear, in-the-canal, completely in-the-canal and new cochlear completely in-the-ear solutions are refined through variables such as shell size, RFI suppression, sound damping, port configuration, frequency response, shock resistance and more.

Features

  • Complete range of configuration options
  • Wide range of size and performance options
  • Custom crafted designs.

Applications

  • Manufacturing of hearing aids.

Surface Mount MEMSMicrophones, Surface Mount MEMS

Built on the CMOS/MEMS technology platform (originally launched in 2002), the SiSonic™ silicon-based microphone series is entering its fourth generation of development, with product shipments exceeding 5 billion units to date. The proven and evolving design series continues to support high-performance, high-density innovation in such applications as cell phones, digital still cameras, portable music players and other portable electronic devices.

Design variables include ever-smaller sizes, lower profiles and mounting options, increased output capacities and new digital audio options that eliminate analog noise. For manufacturers, surface mount designs eliminate off-line subassembly production costs. Customised designs are supplied on tape-and-reel and can be run through standard automatic pick-n-place equipment during in-line surface mount manufacturing.

The microphones can also be integrated with the patented IntelliSonic™ software and special porting designs to provide a precisely customised sound.

Features

  • New MaxRF models eliminate GSM/TDMA burst noise and provide wide-band RF noise suppression
  • UltraMini footprint - less than 11.5mm
  • Slim UltraMini footprint - less than 8.5mm
  • Digital mics eliminate analog noise
  • Integrated designs with differential or switchable gain
  • Bottom port for thinnest ever designs
  • Multiple performance modes (sleep, low-power, standard mode) optimise voice-trigger applications by entering a low-power high-SNR sensing mode.

Applications

  • For use within mobile phones, smart phones, electronic devices, video cameras, still cameras, music players
  • For use within voice activated equipment, development of apps
  • OEM/ ODM

BoomMicrophones, Boom

Our boom microphones are designed for either flexible or rigid configurations and offer such performance options as noise rejection and high-frequency crossover of near and far field responses. Lengths and end terminations are customised to meet your application needs.

Marketers of headsets and audio systems often seek these boom designs. Collaboration with commercial, governmental and industrial designers is producing new helmet applications for aircraft, military, first responder and high-noise manufacturing environments.

Features

  • Standard and waterproof
  • Flexible and rigid styles
  • Boom housing available in plastic and metal
  • Customised lengths and end terminations.

Applications

  • Voice recognition
  • Transcribing e.g. Dragon and Dication
  • For use in noisy environments due to its noise cancelling capabilities.

MagneticMicrophones, Magnetic

At Micromax, we offer boom microphones that utilise magnetic microphone elements.  These elements generate their own signal and unlike traditional dynamic microphones, do not require a bias voltage.  This feature can be helpful to ensure compatibility with radios.

BJ-based boom microphones have been chosen over dynamic microphones to upgrade performance and reliability for military and first responder applications.

Features

  • Robust reliability and high performance
  • Does not require a bias voltage.

WaterproofMicrophones, Waterproof

Our waterproof microphones are designed to survive complete immersion in water. Form factors include a miniature design that can be immersed in water to a depth of one meter and a bellows design for depths to 15 meters. The bellows design may be panel mounted and is suitable for outdoor use and repeated submersion. The miniature design offers excellent noise cancelling performance that is ideal for underwater sensors and instrumentation.

Features

  • Highly waterproof and submersible
  • Withstand explosive decompression
  • Excellent environmental performance
  • Corrosion resistant.

Applications

  • For use in rugged environments.
