Akustica is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Bosch Group and a top supplier of silicon microphone products that are improving voice-input quality in a host of voice-enabled applications, from mobile phones, laptops, and tablets to small wearable accessories like headsets.
A History of Innovation
Akustica was founded in 2001 in Pittsburgh, PA, to commercialize acoustic CMOS MEMS technology licensed from Carnegie Mellon University. Akustica holds the exclusive license to these patents and has developed additional technologies to support the company's mission to create and commercialize a new generation of monolithic CMOS MEMS microphone products.  In 2006, Akustica introduced the world's first and only single-chip, digital-output microphone. Since introduction, Akustica’s expanded line of digital MEMS microphones has been chosen by top-tier laptop manufacturers for their ease of integration, consistent performance and excellent voice quality.
