Compal And Fortemedia Launch First Notebook With Small Array Microphone
Fortemedia and Compal Electronics announced the 1st production ready mainstream notebook integrating Fortemedia’s patented Small Array Microphone (SAM) technology at the Intel Developer Forum 2006 (San Francisco, Taipei, Shanghai).
Fortemedia’s SAM module is integrated on the display lid of Compal’s HGL30/31 notebook. Differing from broadside array microphone, SAM’s unique cone shaped beam can effectively suppress ambient interferers and noises from typing, hard disk or optical drive spinning and notebook fan. SAM also provides uncompromised full duplex speakerphone performance. Its distinctive small form factor, low power consumption addresses the challenges faced in designing notebooks.
The new HGL30/31 series is a thin-and-light notebook with advanced features like 1.3M pixel camera, Fortemedia SAM module, VoIP desk phone integration, TPM 1.2 and fingerprint in a slim 5.3 lb package.
