InvenSense's INMP621 is a high sound pressure level (SPL), ultra-low noise, low power, digital output, bottom-ported, omnidirectional MEMS microphone. This microphone clips at 133 dB SPL, which is useful for clearly capturing audio in loud environments. The INMP621 consists of a MEMS microphone element and an impedance converter amplifier followed by a fourth-order Σ-Δ modulator. The digital interface allows the pulse density modulated (PDM) output of two microphones to be time multiplexed on a single data line using a single clock. The INMP621 is pin compatible with the INMP421 and INMP521 microphones, providing an easy upgrade path.
The INMP621 has a high SNR of 65 dBA and sensitivity of -46 dBFS. The INMP621 has an extended wideband frequency response, resulting in natural sound with high intelligibility. Low current consumption and a sleep mode with less than 5.5 µA of current consumption enables long battery life for portable applications.
The INMP621 is available in a thin 4 mm x 3 mm x 1 mm surface-mount package. It is reflow-solder compatible with no sensitivity degradation.
