Validity Sensors launched the VFS301 fingerprint sensor. The durable and cost-effective VFS301 fingerprint sensor offers lower power, improved performance, a smaller form factor, and key customization options compared to its predecessor, VFS201, resulting in an even better end user experience.
Customization options include thin and variable z-heights, the industry’s first flush mount capability, and a variety of color options. The mechanical options help make OEM integration easier. Features like flush mount will help provide a better end user experience. Custom color options allow OEMs to match the fingerprint sensor color with the industrial design and look of their devices, satisfying end consumers’ desire for improved aesthetics on computer and electronic devices.
The separation of the sensing area and the silicon chip also allows the VFS301 to maintain a large high-quality imaging area without compromising OEM customers’ cost targets. The silicon chip can be smaller than the sensor area, offering cost savings, while the sensor area can remain larger and optimized for real-life finger sizes.
Validity’s biometric solutions are used in numerous notebook PCs and PC peripheral devices offered by companies such as HP, Acer, General Dynamics Itronix and DDS.
