The silicon sensor consists of 40.000
distance measuring sensors using an improved capacitive
principle. The sensor can be programmed in such a way that it
is insensitive to common problems, such as a ghost-image due
to remaining sweat. This principle has been recently filed at
the Swedish Patent Office. The chip is fabricated by
Mietec-Alcatel. The system has been developed in cooperation
with Nordic VLSI for Fingerprint Cards AB. One of the intended
application fields is the telecom market for securing portable
phones. For more marketing information contact Fingerprint
