Fingerprint scanners have been easily available at a consumer level for a number of years now, so it is only logical that they would continue to grow and evolve as time moves on. That’s what brings us to this capacitive fingerprint scanner module. The MFC-2160KM fingerprint scanner module is a combination fingerprint sensor and MCU and provides a UART interface port for easy functionality.

The MFC-2160KM sets itself apart from other fingerprint scanners with the ability to read a fingerprint’s image by pixel array and delivering ridge or valley signals to the A/D converter and digital processor, then to the serial peripheral interface for data-reading. The onboard MCU uses a fingerprint algorithm allowing you, through UART, to use MCU SOC commands to operate modules like fingerprint enroll, match operations, and more.

The MFC-2160KM features an image resolution of 508dpi, a recognition time of fewer than 0.6 seconds, and can store up to 40 high-quality templates. The MFC-2160KM all-in-one capacitive fingerprint sensor module is 100 percent made in Taiwan.
