WE CREATE SENSORS THAT COMBINE THE BEST OF CENTURY-OLD INNOVATION WITH IMAGINATIVE MODERN ENGINEERING

We live in the world of engineering, bound by the laws of physics but spared from the constraints of a specific industry. At Silicon Audio, we begin by looking at current technology that’s accepted and proven, but insufficient. In devices we use in our daily lives. And we ask: Why has it always been done this way? Can we make it be better? How could something new cause a paradigm shift improvement?

Seismic Sensors

LOW self NOISE

By using optical interferometry, we lowered our sensor’s self-noise to achieve more accurate low noise data across a wider frequency range. In ultra low noise applications, one sensor replaces the need for both a broadband sensor and an accelerometer.

OMNI-TILT

We call it “omni-tilt.” What we mean is that our seismic sensor is 360-degree tilt-insensitive. By eliminating concerns about placement and leveling, our goal is to remove time and expense from sensor deployment in data acquisition.

HIGH CLIP LEVEL

With a high clip level, Silicon Audio’s optical seismometer captures large signals and low-noise signals simultaneously across a wide bandwidth of frequencies. In field applications, one seismometer captures data that previously required multiple sensors.

HOW DOES THE OPTICAL SEISMOMETER WORK?

The traditional geophone has been the industry standard for decades, and for good reason. Silicon Audio took what works and then added an optical component to increase sensitivity and performance, creating a new paradigm for seismic sensors. To understand how our optical seismometer works and what it means for data acquisition, watch this video.

Magnet Free Circulators

ACHIEVING BREAKTHROUGHS IN MAGNET-FREE CIRCULATOR TECHNOLOGY

In many communication systems, isolators and circulators are of fundamental importance, as they protect sources from self-interference and allow full-duplex functionality. In lay terms, circulators enable transmission and receipt of signals in the same frequency channel at the same time. At present, this operation can only be achieved with magnetic devices, which are bulky, heavy, expensive, and cannot be integrated on a chip. Silicon Audio is applying its core competencies and mechanical and electrical engineering capabilities to realize full-duplex functionality based on circulators without the use of magnets, creating the potential for novel applications using a new generation of magnet-free circulators.
