Hana Micron opens Vietnam plant to meet demand for biometric fingerprint modules



Hana Micron Inc. will begin operations at a plant for biometric fingerprint sensor packaging to increase its capacity to 210 million units as demand surges, Pulse reports.

The South Korea-based company is a major global player in semiconductor packaging and testing, and supplies fingerprint sensor modules to smartphone and notebook OEMs. The company builds modules with sensors supplied by several fingerprint sensor makers, and in 2018 developed its Hanaflex 3d flexible semiconductor packaging technology, which enables smaller chip packages that are flexible and suited for use in biometric smartcards, wearables, and medical devices.

One solution Hana Micron has developed with Hanaflex is a fingerprint recognition module that integrates a Fingerprint Cards sensor for mounting on smart cards, according to the report.

The new plant is the company’s second in Vietnam, and was completed in March, but its opening was delayed by the pandemic. The 20,000-square foot facility cost roughly 50 billion won (US$41.6 million), and Hana Micron intends to use the space to support more orders from smartphone and semiconductor makers.

The company expects 3 million fingerprint modules per month to be manufactured at the facility.

In addition to fingerprint modules, Hana Micron makes RF packaging, and system-in-packaging (SiP) technologies as part of a trend towards increased miniaturization in semiconductors.
