USound

Reinventing the audio industry in the digital era - audio components based on MEMS technology

USound develops and produces novel audio components based on MEMS technology (micro-electro-mechanical-systems) for smartphones and other consumer electronics applications. In the year 2017 alone, an estimated number of 1.7 billion smartphones will be sold, sleek and slender and yet expected to integrate an increasing number of functionalities.
The solutions offered by USound are tailor-made to meet the requirements of this demanding market by providing high audio quality, high integration capacity and small components. Apart from traditional application areas such as audio amplifiers for mobile devices, first customer contacts have also shown a strong interest in a wide range of other audio applications.

The USound team benefits from extensive experience in the field of MEMS as well as from in-depth management experience of start-up companies, from foundation through to successful exit. Ferruccio Bottoni has 20 years of manufacturing experience in the area of microelectronics and micro-electro-mechanics. Andrea Rusconi has been involved in the development of new MEMS technology since the year 2002. Jörg Schönbacher’s professional experience as a lawyer specialised in company financing stretches over several years and enhances the team.
