8. Should I choose ECM or MEMS microphones?

Electret-Condenser Microphones (ECMs) comes in various terminal types, ranging from wire, dip to SMD type, yet MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical) microphones only come in SMD type. Another advantage of ECMs is it is slightly cheaper and simple to use. However, clients are advised to choose MEMS mic if they prefer something of smaller size, with less noise, and more resistant to thermal shocks, mechanical shocks and electrostatic interference. Many high end consumer electronics now use MEMS mic. Our team is pleased to assist clients in designing driving circuits for MEMS microphones.
