Durable Swipe Sensor Featuring LiveFlex® Technology PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
VFS301 is a durable high performance dual-line-imaging (DLI) fingerprint sensor with a small exposed form factor and low power consumption. The cost effective VFS301 is designed for optimal integration into notebook computers, tablet PCs, and PC peripherals, and can be colorized to to satisfy OEMs’ increasing requirements for customization and end consumers’ desire for improved aesthetics on notebook PCs. The product consists of custom silicon chip bonded to a Kapton® plastics flex circuit, known as Chip-On-Flex (COF). The sensor captures the unique features of a 3-D fingerprint image using a patented technique to detect and measure the ridges and valleys of a live finger. The product uses an industry leading, patented image reconstruction algorithm from Cogent Systems to acquire a high quality fingerprint image. Users swipe their finger over a durable Kapton® plastic surface for authentication, identification, securing data, and more.
