Goodix recognized for its live fingerprint detection sensor

January 5, 2017 - 

Goodix has been named a CES 2017 Best of Innovation Awards Winner in the Embedded Technologies Category for its live fingerprint detection sensor.

Products entered in this program are judged by a panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.

Goodix`s live fingerprint authentication solution captures the biometrics of the finger itself combined with heartbeat authentication. The two-factor process first scans to determine whether or not the fingerprint is “live” through the use of infrared technology, then the fingerprint must match the enrolled template in terms of both fidelity and conductivity. With these biometric capabilities, the sensor is able to detect fake or cloned 2D and 3D fingerprints in the hardware and software integrated solution.

“Just like the PIN passcode before it, the application of fingerprint authentication on mobile devices has become the market norm,” said Dr. Bo Pi, Chief Technology Officer, Goodix. “With the ability to detect your pulse, the Live Fingerprint Detection Sensor also opens a whole new set of use cases in industries spanning fitness, wearables, home, lifestyle and even automotive.”

In 2016 Goodix took home two Innovation Awards for IFSTM and Goodix LinkTM.
