The technology behind fingerprint scanners can be categorised into two types: optical and capacitive.</p> <p>An optical sensor, using an internal light source, illuminates your finger allowing the scanner to turn the light signals into digital pixels like a digital camera. A processor then converts that image into a fingerprint template.</p> <p>A capacitive sensor, like those on an iPhone 5S and Galaxy S5, also uses images of a fingerprint, but creates that image with a different technology. The capacitive sensor contains an array of small capacitive plates, ranging from a few hundred to many 1000s, and each plate has its own electrical circuit. The sensor often looks like a raised bar (or stripe) and contains a single row of sensors. After swiping your finger over the sensor, the processor then <em>&ldquo;stitches&rdquo;</em> together each line of scans to create the image.</p> <p>One of the more...HID Global releases its latest EDGE EVO® Solo IP-enabled solutionhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-823-ga-npr.15013.htmlhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-823-ga-npr.15013.htmlNew Product ReleasesThu, 28 Aug 2014 08:00:00 GMT<p>HID Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, recently announced the release of its EDGE EVO&reg; Solo IP-enabled solution that brings intelligence and decision-making to the door for advanced and highly customisable networked access control.
