The MFC-2160Q biometrics circular fingerprint sensor is based on capacitive-touched technology with a hardened surface and enhanced ESD strength. Designed for fingerprint reader, fingerprint scanner, fingerprint locks’ sensors. The built-in analog and digital circuits could minimize the number of external components, and provide an easy-to-use standard SPI interface to microprocessors.

The operation of the MFC-2160Q circular capacitive fingerprint sensor is as following, a fingerprint image captured by the pixel array, delivering fingerprint ridge or valley signals to A/D converter and digital processor, then to the serial peripheral interface for data-reading. The image quality of MFC-2160Q circular capacitive fingerprint sensor can be adjusted by setting gain, offset and reference voltage parameters internally. In addition, the internal operations and interface speed can also be configured to meet various finger conditions.

MFC-2160Q circular capacitive fingerprint sensor also has a finger detection function and windowing function for different applications such as the fingerprint padlock, fingerprint wearable devices, and fingerprint access control.

This fingerprint sensor chip is 100% made in Taiwan and the quality is super reliable.  We also support the algorithm with extra MCU
