Apple MacBook Air with Touch ID
Apple's all-new MacBook Air is equipped a 13-inch Retina display and Touch ID. The new MacBook Air is available in three finishes - gold, space gray and silver - and features an Apple-designed keyboard, a Force Touch trackpad, faster SSDs, wide stereo sound, the Apple T2 Security Chip and Thunderbolt 3. The new MacBook Air's 13.3-inch display offers over four million pixels of resolution and with 48% more color than the previous generation, according to Apple. The new MacBook Air also includes a built-in FaceTime HD camera and a three microphone array for better sound quality when making calls and improved voice recognition for Siri. The new MacBook Air includes Touch ID - a fingerprint sensor built right into the keyboard - which allows users to unlock their MacBook Airs, authenticate their identities, and make fast, simple and secure purchases using Apple Pay. To support Touch ID, the new MacBook Air comes with the Apple T2 Security Chip, which makes users' notebook more secure. The T2's Secure Enclave protects Touch ID information and also ensures that software loaded during the boot process has not been tampered with. The T2 also features an SSD controller with on-the-fly data encryption for everything stored on the SSD. The T2 also features an always-on processor that enables "Hey Siri," which lets users make requests to Siri with their voices for things like finding files or opening an app.

Infineon MEMS microphones with 70 dB signal-to-noise ratio
Infineon Technologies is entering the packaged silicon microphone market, addressing the needs for high performance, low noise MEMS microphones. The analog and digital microphones are based on Infineon's dual backplate MEMS technology and distinguish themselves with a 70 dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), according to the coompany. This is combined with a low distortion level of 10% at a 135 dB sound pressure level (SPL). It is in a 4 mm x 3 mm x 1.2 mm MEMS package. Current MEMS microphone technology uses a sound wave actuated membrane and a static backplate. Infineon's dual backplate MEMS technology uses a membrane embedded within two backplates thus generating a truly differential signal, the company said. The SNR of 70 dB is an improvement of 6 dB compared to a conventional MEMS microphone, according to Infineon. This improvement is equivalent to doubling the distance from which a user can give a voice command that is captured by the microphone.

Razer Kraken 7.1 Surround Sound USB gaming headset
Razer has announced its latest audio product, the Razer Kraken 7.1 Surround Sound USB gaming headset. The Razer Kraken 7.1 comes equipped with an advanced virtual surround sound engine capable of ultra-low latency audio processing that simulates a 360-degree surround sound experience that is usually achievable only by incorporating more than one positional speaker driver in each ear cup. Driven through Razer's Synapse 2.0 unified configuration software, the engine is capable of a high degree of customization, allowing gamers to tweak and specifically position each surround sound channel, boost bass levels and even balance incoming voice audio for astounding aural precision, the vendor said. The omnidirectional digital microphone on the Razer Kraken 7.1 comes equipped with an optimized algorithm, offering better frequency response, sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio than a standard analog microphone, the vendor said. It also has a mic mute button and an LED indicator on the tip to indicate when the mic is active. The headset is priced at US$99.99.
