Portable Electronic Vents

Greater protection. Simpler design.

The GORE® MEMS Protective Vents - Style 300 is installed inside the MEMS microphone during the microphone packaging process to provide component-level IP68 water and dust protection without any special handling during the circuit board assembly process.

Our pioneering venting solution eliminates the need for a separate acoustic vent installed on the housing, reducing complexity and saving space in the acoustic channel of water-protected devices.

Smartphone submerged in water

Portable Electronic Vents

When it comes to ingress protection, among the most vulnerable areas of a smartphone are the openings in the phone’s housing that contain the device’s audio components, particularly the microphone and speakers.

According to Gary Chan, a Gore application engineer for portable electronic venting, Gore’s vents are in more than one billion smartphones, wearables, and other consumer devices around the world.

NEMA Ratings and What They Mean

Technical Information

A critical aspect of vent selection begins with defining the level of protection your application, device or housing requires.

IP ratings cannot be “converted” to NEMA ratings, since NEMA requires additional testing not included in IP. However, there are minimum NEMA ratings that will meet or exceed a given IP code.
