Supported fingerprint device implementations range from “invisible” under-glass sensors for handsets, to home and power buttons for
The combination of low cost, large sensing area, and design flexibility come from Validity’s patented Chip-On-Flex architecture, in which the fingerprint IC is separate from the sensing area. This contrasts with competing devices in which the sensing area is the IC, which results in a tradeoff between cost and performance and which limits design flexibility for space-constrained devices.
Validity provides a full suite of development tools for both Windows™ and Android, speeding up time to market for OEMs and ODMs wishing to incorporate Natural ID™ into their designs.
