Holst Centre IMEC fingerprint sensor in display, organic photodiode frontplane, IGZO backplane

Posted by Charbax – June 22, 2018

Holst Centre demonstrated next-gen technology that integrates the fingerprint sensor into the display. Using flat-panel display (FPD) compatible processes, Holst Centre researchers created a 6x8-cm, 200 ppi active matrix imager with a solution-processed, ultrathin organic photodiode frontplane and an IGZOTFT backplane. The imager was demonstrated in a biometric palm print and multiple-finger detector. They believe the palm print is a more secure biometric than fingerprint scanning; and the processing of all building blocks in the palm print imager is compatible with existing FPD technology platform.
