ICS-52000: Low-Noise Microphone with TDM Digital Output from TDK InvenSense

ICS-52000: Low-Noise Microphone with TDM Digital Output
MEMS Microphone Made For Arrays

InvenSense ICS-52000TDK InvenSense introduces the latest MEMS Microphone, the ICS-52000. The ICS-52000 is a digital TDM output bottom port microphone. The complete ICS‐52000 solution consists of a MEMS sensor, signal conditioning, an analog‐to‐digital converter, decimation and anti‐aliasing filters, power management, and an industry standard 24‐bit TDM interface.

The TDM interface allows an array of up to 16 of the ICS‐52000 microphones to connect directly to digital processors, such as DSPs and microcontrollers, without the need for an audio codec in the system. All microphones in an array sample their acoustic signals synchronously, enabling precise array processing.
