The concept is to use a polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) material as a transducer/label combination in a consumer device requiring both an audible alert and iden- tifier label. A good example product is a pager. The con- tinuing emphasis on size reduction in electronic devices has resulted in high priced miniature transducers. The transducer/label allows the transducer to move to the exterior, freeing up valuable space inside the unit. The high priced miniature transducer is replaced by a less expensive piece of PVDF material.
