Seamless integration of fingerprint sensors into mobile phones

This is a guest post by Dr. Rouzet Agaiby, Senior Business Development Engineer at FlexEnable. The adoption of biometrics in smartphones started with the introduction of fingerprint recognition technology in Apple’s iPhone 5 in 2013. Soon after many other smartphone OEMs started integrating fingerprint sensors, and more recently facial recognition, either as multi-modal or standalone user authentication solutions. Today, fingerprint sensors remain the most commonly used biometric authentication technology in mobile phones, and their integration continues to be a hot

Flexible fingerprint sensors: a game-changer for biometric applications

This is a guest post by Dr. Rouzet Agaiby, Senior Business Development Engineer at FlexEnable. A large percentage of existing fingerprint sensors on the market use silicon technology due to its maturity as well as its established supply chain. Capacitive sensors have been the dominant technology because they allow compact fingerprint sensors in comparison to the main alternative approach of optical fingerprint sensors, which have been more bulky due to the optics used to de-magnify and focus the image.
