PDM is the 'third' kind of microphone you can integrate with electronics, apart from analog or I2S. This sensor does not provide an 'analog' output. So it's great for chips that do not have analog inputs.the digital interface is a very simplistic pulse density modulation output. It's digital but its not PWM and it's not I2S. You will need to make sure your chip has a PDM interface - most 32-bit processors these days do!
PDM is a little like 1-bit PWM. You clock the mic with a 1 MHz - 3 MHz clock rate, and on the data line you'll get a square wave out that syncs with the clock. The data line with be 0 or 1 logic output, with the square wave creating a density that when averaged will result in the analog value out.
