Helike

Development board

Utilize the most advanced MEMS speaker technology with the development board Helike 1.0 UA-E3010. This platform allows users to evaluate, prototype, and design audio solutions using USound MEMS speaker technology. The board can be used as a standalone component and is Raspberry Pi compatible. It features open-source software, and the acoustic response can be tuned via PC.

Compatible with Raspberry Pi

The board functions in standalone mode, as an extension to the Raspberry Pi platform, or as a USB soundcard connected to a PC via USB-C.

Integrations and applications

MEMS speaker amplifiers and electrodynamic speaker amplifiers are available on the PCB to enable the evaluation of several applications, including hearables and wearables. An output connector section allows the interface to various USound extension kits.

Rapid Prototyping

The development board can be used to design new custom solutions, rapid prototyping, and evaluate several USound audio solutions. Additionally, equalization presets are available for compatible USound extension kits.

Extension kits

Carme 3.0 UJ-R1030

The Carme 3.0 UJ-R1030 speaker box enables testing of the USound MEMS speaker’s acoustic performance in free field.

USound microspeaker speaker array

Dione sound strips

The flexible sound strips can be used as an audio solution for existing non-audio products as an array of tweeters in a typical multi-way system, including Hi-Fi. The strips are available in two versions: Dione Maxi UY-R3020 consisting of MEMS speakers with an external amplifier on a PCB, and Dione Mini UY-R3010 consisting of MEMS speakers with an integrated amplifier in the array.
