FleXpeaker™

ITRI's paper-thin FleXpeaker™ received the Wall Street Journal’s 2009 Technology Innovation Award.ITRI's paper-thin FleXpeaker™ received the Wall Street Journal’s 2009 Technology Innovation Award.

The technology utilizes paper and metal layers as the material with a thickness of less than 0.1 cm and uses standard printing for large-size paper-thin flexible speaker mass production. The great sound quality covers a range of 20 to 200 kHz. It is especially good for high-frequency sounds such as the chirps of birds and insects, where fidelity equals or exceeds that of conventional speakers.

In addition, the FleXpeaker™ uses only 10% as much power of conventional speakers, making it environmentally friendly. The new technology will bring the acoustic speaker industry into a brand-new era, and help create revolutionary consumer products such as memory cards with voice capabilities and ultra-thin MP3 players.

It could even be incorporated into other products that are integrated into green buildings, electric vehicles, entertainment and medical devices. The technology will help create new lifestyles and cater to the pursuit of personalized, humanized applications. This breakthrough in electronic sound received the 2009 Wall Street Journal Innovation Award in the Consumer Electronics category and the Red Dot Best Design Award by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Germany.
