Engineering the Science of Sound

Vidyard Cover


High-performance audio is a key competitive feature in high-volume IoT and consumer products – including automotive infotainment, mobile devices, and even toys. This is coupled with increasing design complexity including speaker durability, noise suppression, miniaturization, and many other requirements.

This makes acoustic design and manufacturing anything but simple.
