COMPARING MEMS AND ELECTRET CONDENSER MICROPHONES

MEMS Microphone Basics MEMS microphones are constructed with a MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical System) component placed on a printed circuit board (PCB) and protected with a mechanical cover. A small hole is fabricated in the case to allow sound into the microphone and is either designated as top-ported if the hole is in the top cover or bottom-ported if the hole is in the PCB. The MEMS component is often de ...

An introduction to GPIO Settings

Working with microcontrollers means managing GPIO pins at some point. Many configurations have been developed for modern microcontrollers which can lead to some “fancy” terms that may confuse programmers. Its important to understand all of this to avoid confusion and errors while programming. First, some terms need to be understood. GPIO pins have tri-state logic which means that contrary to popular beliefs ...
