Paper Abstract

More than ten percent of the population in developed countries suffers from hearing impairment. Various devices have been invented to improve speech related hearing impaired people. Micro Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) implementations of acoustical sensors are important and have potential application for future hearing aid instruments. Our paper deals with the modeling and analysis of Piezoelectric MEMS sensors for hearing aid applications. We will present MEMS based sensor and analyze the best design for hearing aid instruments. This research will be valuable for future miniature hearing aids.
