Akustica Inc. is a privately held company with
headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA.
We develop acoustic MEMS chips with an
exclusive license to several patented MEMS
technologies originally developed at Carnegie
Mellon University. Akustica has an experienced
management team and world-class strategic
advisors with industry experience and notoriety.
While the majority of our production is outsourced
to standard computer chip (CMOS) foundries, our
facilities include proximity to a new Class 1000
Clean Room for post-production of products.
Akustica is focused on the development of acoustic
microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) for
next-generation audio and acoustic products. MEMS
are computer chips that have both mechanical and
electrical components. The mechanical components on
acoustic MEMS chips are membranes that function as
speakers or microphones.
There is a proliferation of acoustic products in the
market today, most notably in mobile phones, hearing
aids and consumer audio devices. Many of today’s
products, however, have reached their performance
limitations due to the shortcomings of the current
technology. Acoustic MEMS will launch a new
generation of audio and acoustic products that will
provide better performance at a lower cost.
Akustica combines the power of computing with
miniature and integrated acoustic components to deliver
a new class of audio and acoustic products. Akustica
technologies enable us to integrate comprehensive
systems onto single chips, which eliminate costly
discrete components, reduce component space,
simplify the manufacturing processes, lower system
costs and increase reliability.
