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.
