Technical Innovation

SILENSE will develop and improve smart acoustic technology blocks on different levels – hardware, software and system – to achieve these many applications.

  • SILENSE lowers the cost and energy consumption and improves the performance (directivity, fractional bandwidth, dynamic range, frequency range, sensitivity and efficiency…) of micro-acoustic transducers.
  • SILENSE develops package and assembly technology. More specifically heterogeneously and monolithically integrated arrays of micro-acoustic transducers with their supporting electronics. The project also provides dedicated low-power IC design.
  • SILENSE develops smart algorithms for acoustic data communication and sensing.
  • SILENSE combines voice/speech, digital sound modulation and gesture control by means of the same transducer(s).
