Fingerprint Cards AB announces the launch of a new, slim and curved capacitive touch sensor for biometric authentication. Following the success of the FPC1540 sensor, the uniquely curved FPC1542 sensor is set to enable innovation in the latest borderless smartphone designs.
As demand for side-mounted touch sensors grows, the curved sensor offers OEMs enhanced design flexibility while improving user experience with a seamlessly integrated sensor that can double as a power button or volume control, or be used to operate the camera shutter and to scroll. The sensor can be coated in a range of colors to complement the aesthetics of the smartphone design.
FPC1542 expands Fingerprints’ portfolio of capacitive sensors, that are now integrated on the front, back, and side of over 455 different mobile device models.
Fingerprints will start volume shipments in Q4 and expect the first smartphone using FPC1542 to be launched in Q1 2021.
