id3 Semiconductors owns a core state-of-the-art fingerprint recognition technology that perfectly combines:
amazing sensor interoperability and independence.
It can be successfully used on applications involving a single (verification) or multiple (identification) users, targeting systems from wide-scale server to standalone embedded devices.
Why using fingerprints
Fingerprint is the most widely used biometric identification technology: due to its easy capture, its uniqueness and its permanence, it is the best choice to design both reliable and robust identification systems. Each person, even a real twin, owns unique and permanent fingerprints that only intradermal injuries can damage.
How can accuracy and standard compliancy be achieved together
Fingerprint patterns are commonly characterized by the bifurcations and the terminations of the upper part of the skin waves, called minutiae. Using these characteristic points, id3 technology can fully comply with standards, while advanced minutiae matching techniques ensure the overall technology accuracy.
How sensor interoperability and independence is made possible
Advanced image processing techniques are applied on every fingerprint input images. That way, biometric data extraction is processed similarly on images acquired with different sensing technology.
