Re: Which metal and plastic materials?

Good question, Chuck. There's probably (at least one) central repository of such specs somewhere on the web.

I wonder how that 40 N force compares to other MEMS microphones. It sounds like a lot.

I have a similar memory about plastic anything not playing well with good sound quality in general. ST usually gives a lot of spec info onsite. For this product, they are here:

I was also wondering about "flat cable circuit boards". I also wonder what these microphones sound like. My recollection from years past is that plastic microphones and hgh fidelity are mutually exlusive. So it will indeed be interesting to hear a demonstration of what they sound like, and to read some published specifications.

Peter, does "flat-cable printed circuit boards" mean flex circuits? And do you know what kind of plastic is used vs which metal in the drop tests? I'm  really interested in learning which plastic outperformed which metal.

Latest Analysis
2016 engineering grads can expect to earn an average salary of $65,000 right out of the gate. Petroleum engineers' wallets are much fatter, though -- they are expected to earn about $20K more.
3D printing is now adding value to manufacturers at all steps along the business value chain. Come find out how at a talk by John Jaddou at next month's Embedded Systems Conference in Minneapolis.
From IoT and M2M to flexible robotics and consumer HMI, the advances in smart manufacturing are being deployed on the packaging floor.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
