Integrated Biometrics Introduces super-thin Appendix F Mobile ID sensors

December 6, 2012 - 

Integrated Biometrics has announced its newest FBI-certified fingerprint reader, which promises to be 95% smaller than other products in the market.

Called The Sherlock, this new product uses Integrated Biometrics’s patented Light Emiting Sensor (LES) technology along with a thin film transistor (TFT). According to the company, LES technology utilizes a highly engineered charged polymer film interacting with the specific properties of human skin to luminesce fingerprint images. The TFT captures the image at the FBI’s standard 500PPI requirement. It is the combination of LES technology and the TFT that makes this sensor so small and light. In fact, this is the world’s first TFT based sensor to achieve the FBI’s Appendix F Mobile ID.

Integrated Biometrics provides custom finger print sensors for markets requiring Appendix F or PIV071006 biometric solutions and is known for the small size and effectiveness of its sensors.

As reported previously in, Integrated Biometrics has also created the world’s thinnest two-finger scanner, dubbed the Watson-Mini, which also utilizes the Integrated Biometrics LES technology.
