Why silicon fingerprint modules?

Silicon single fingerprint modules are lower profile, smaller, and lighter than traditional optical modules. Our TouchChip silicon modules line provides high-quality fingerprint images for a wide range of skin conditions. For extremely high volume and harsh environmental use cases, we offer a SteelCoat capture surface coating for added durability.

Why capacitive TFT fingerprint modules?

Crossmatch capacitive thin film transistor (TFT) fingerprint modules are exceptionally low profile and lightweight. They feature a space-saving footprint, without sacrificing image quality or rapid capture speed. Capacitive TFT modules are non-optical, creating an image based on electrical resistance. Offering similar image quality to our optical modules, they provide capture performance for a range of skin conditions—without weighing down your device or taking up too much space. Choose our capacitive TFT modules for unrivaled versatility and flexibility in your next integration.
