  • Advanced sound tech company Audio Pixels (AKP) is progressing its proprietary MEMS technology on its pathway to manufacture
  • The novel tech uses micro-electromechanical structures (MEMS) to generate sound waves directly from a digital audio stream
  • This requires highly exacting standards of component manufacture to guarantee no noise or imperfections are introduced into the audio output
  • The vendor of the microchip-bearing wafers used in the MEMS system is correcting imperfections in the component’s manufacture
  • Once this process is refined, the company can progress to individual chip manufacture and the final phase of testing in acoustically controlled spaces
  • Audio Pixels is down 4.3 per cent today, with shares priced at $13.86 each

Advanced sound tech company Audio Pixels (AKP) has provided an update on the progress of its proprietary MEMS technology and its pathway to manufacture.

Memes? No, MEMS.

The novel tech uses micro-electromechanical structures (MEMS) to generate sound waves directly from a digital audio stream, creating high end, next-gen speakers for consumer electronics.

This requires highly exacting standards of component manufacture to guarantee no noise or imperfections are introduced into the audio output.

Audio Pixels is in the process of perfecting the wafer component of the tech in collaboration with its manufacturer to refine and perfect this vital cog in the MEMS system.

The wafers are essentially sheets of the microchips used in the tech, which will be cut up into individual components in the next phase of manufacture.

The first exemplars showed some residue on the surface of the wafer, which the vendor is now working to eliminate, with subsequent wafers intended for statistical verification to be delivered in around two weeks.

What’s next?

The company is now working with its European vendors to work on die singulation, assembly and packaging.

Die singulation is the process whereby the chip-bearing wafers are cut up into individual microchips.

Once this process is perfected, the company can progress to the final phase of testing in acoustically controlled spaces.

The company is edging ever-closer to having its revolutionary audio tech ready for market — albeit, the final testing and manufacturing phases will take some time, given the exacting nature of the product specifications.

Audio Pixels is down 4.3 per cent today, with shares priced at $13.86 each as at 11:55 am AEST.
