IEEE EMC Society Chicago Chapter Meeting Wednesday, November
The Shure Unidyne Microphone
Its Remarkable History
Introduced in 1939 and still being
manufactured today, the Shure Unidyne was the first unidirectional microphone
using a single dynamic element. The presentation provides an
overview of the Unidyne’s unique position in the history of 20th
century broadcast, politics, and entertainment, plus the amazing story of the 24
year old immigrant from the Ukraine who invented the Unidyne and earned his
first of over 100 patents for audio technology.
The IEEE Milestones in Electrical
Engineering and Computing Award was presented to Shure in January, 2014, for the
development of the Unidyne. The
award recognized the technical breakthrough in offering lower cost, greater
reliability, and improved performance for communications.
The IEEE Milestone Award honors pioneering work in engineering.
