Thin fingerprint sensor protected against electrostatic discharge to ±30kV

The FPC1011F3 thin finger print CMOS sensor from Fingerprint Cards comes with increased protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD) well above 30kV and 256 gray scale values in every single programmable pixel.

The reflective measurement method sends an electrical signal via the frame directly into the finger. This technique enables the use of an unbeatable hard and thick protective surface coating. The sensor with its 3D pixel sensing technology can read virtually any finger; dry or wet. Thanks to the extremely hard and durable surface coating capable of more than 10 million finger placements, the FPC1011F3 is protected against scratches and everyday wear-and-tear. FPC1011F3 is delivered with a designed micro-ergonomic guidance frame, simplifying proper fingerprint guidance and hence improving algorithm performance.
