Ultrasonics For The New Fingerprint Sensor Technology

16 Mar, 2015 Industry News
Ultrasonics For Fingerprint Sensor

Qualcomm today introduced what could be the first biometric technology that competes with Appleís Touch ID in both security and ease of use.

Called Snapdragon Sense ID 3D Fingerprint Technology, the product is a combination of an integrated ultrasonic biometric reader and a series of algorithms and frameworks that allows a device to scan a userís fingerprint from any part of the phone.

Because it uses ultrasound and not a capacitive sensor like existing biometric solutions, OEMs can install the reader anywhere on a smartphone or wearable device. And Qualcomm claims that its sensitivity is such that it can penetrate liquid such as sweat or hand lotion that typically trip up existing readers.

Qualcomm has partnered with FIDO, a standards body that ensures equalization among companies that create authentication-based solutions, often for mobile payments, to ensure that Sense ID can be implemented in a wide range of products.

The product is compatible with all Snapdragon 400, 600 and 800-series SoCs from Qualcomm, and should arrive in its first devices later this year.
