INMP441 MEMS High Precision Omnidirectional Microphone Module

The INMP441 mems sensor is a high-performance, low-power digital I2S output omnidirectional MEMS microphone. Built on a compact footprint, this module is specifically designed for advanced audio and voice recognition applications. With its inherent low-noise and high Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) attributes, it offers crystal-clear audio capture even in challenging environments. Its compatibility with the I2S interface, a standard used for transmitting digital audio between devices, ensures that it can be integrated into a diverse range of audio processing setups. The INMP441 microphone module is an invaluable component for developers looking to incorporate superior audio input capabilities into their projects.


INMP441 Pinout

The INMP441 microphone modules have six pins, three on each side as shown in the above pinout image. The inmp441 pins on the module are spaced in such a way that it can be easily mounted on a breadboard. The pin definition for INMP441 microphone module is shown below.  




Serial-Data Clock for I²S Interface


Serial-Data Output for I²S Interface. This pin tri-states when not actively driving the
appropriate output channel.


Serial Data-Word Select for I²S Interface


Left/Right Channel Select. When set low, the microphone outputs its signal in the left channel
of the I²S frame. When set high, the microphone outputs its signal in the right channel.


Power, 1.8 V to 3.3 V
