Founded in 2001, Akustica, Inc. is a privately held company based in Pittsburgh.
Through a revolutionary technology known as Sensory Silicon™, Akustica products
enable electronic devices to sense and respond to the world around them. By leveraging
standard CMOS processes and MEMS technology, Akustica acoustic system-on-chip
solutions combine the functionality of microphones with microelectronics and software
onto a single chip. Only Akustica’s CMOS MEMS Microphone Chips - which were
pioneered by Akustica co-founder and CTO Dr. Ken Gabriel during his tenure at
Carnegie Mellon University - enable single-chip solutions with arrays of transducers and
integrated signal processing that disrupt both conventional microphone and speaker
technologies. Smaller and more reliable than the current crop of electret condenser
microphones (ECMs), silicon microphones can be customized with advanced sound
capture features and noise reduction capabilities.
