The MFC-2160 waterproof capacitive fingerprint reader sensor is IP 67 sensor. Based on capacitive-touched technology with a hardened surface and enhanced ESD strength. 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-2160 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 the MFC-2160 waterproof 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-2160 waterproof capacitive fingerprint sensor also has a finger detection function and windowing function for different applications such as smart card ID, driver license ID, student ID, fingerprint lock, or any handheld devices. This is 100% made in Taiwan and no coronavirus is guaranteed. We also provide the algorithm and better support for custom ROMs.
