Sonitron Announce Ceramic Speaker Evaluation Kit

Aug 2008

Sonitron announce a new Demo Kit to demonstrate their new flat PiezoCeramic speakers. Sonitron's new SPS range of speakers has involved a decade of research and development producing a world leading low power process. Today's portable devices need smaller, thinner, more power-efficient electronic components. Cellular phones have become so thin that the dynamic speaker is now the limiting factor in how thin manufacturers can make their handsets. The ceramic, or piezoelectric, speaker is quickly emerging as a viable alternative to the dynamic speaker. These ceramic speakers can deliver competitive sound pressure levels (SPL's) in a thin and compact package, thus potentially replacing traditional voice-coil dynamic speakers. The kit includes a reference design which employs a MAX9788 Class G amplifier to drive the speaker. Please contact us for more information.
