'Thinned' MEMS Wafer Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor Images Fingerprint Surface in 3D

'Thinned' MEMS Wafer Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor Images Fingerprint Surface in 3D

Fingerprint sensor technology currently used in smartphones like the iPhone 6 produces a two-dimensional image of a finger? surface, which can be spoofed fairly easily with a printed image of the fingerprint. A newly developed ultrasonic sensor eliminates that risk by imaging the ridges and valleys of the fingerprint? surface, and the tissue beneath, in three dimensions. [More]
