Arioso Systems is a spin-off from the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS in Dresden. Fraunhofer has granted to Arioso Systems the exclusive license to commercialize the extensive IPMS patent portfolio for audio applications. Arioso Systems is developing and marketing a novel kind of an all silicon micro-speaker chip which is able to reproduce audio sound with highest fidelity. The Arioso chip is designed to replace common electrodynamic loudspeakers in wireless in-ear headsets, the fastest-growing headphone and wearables market. Arioso’s targeted customer range embraces all well-known audio and mobile phone brands. Arioso Systems’ chips are based on what is known as CMOS manufacturing process. CMOS technology accounts for more than 90% of the worldwide manufacturing capacity for MEMS. Arioso Systems’ all silicon micro-speakers are therefore perfectly suited for large-volume production. The all silicon micro-speakers feature a tiny form factor of only a few mm³, low weight, and high-power efficiency. These are the key requirements for advanced Hearables applications. Hearables are in-ear headsets, directly connected to the internet for perpetual access to multiple voice controlled online services.
