Biometric reader (fingerprint, iris scan, facial recognition)

Biometric reader (fingerprint, iris scan, facial recognition) design resources and block diagram


Our integrated circuits and reference designs help you create highly-secure access control systems based on biometric data (fingerprint, voice recognition, iris scan, 3D face recognition) that are fast, flexible, scalable, and power-efficient.

Biometric readers’ designs often require:

  • Imperceptible structured light patterns for precise and fast 3D face scanning to handle image-processing algorithms
  • Support for traditional methods of authentication, like numeric keypads and smart card access
  • Wireless connectivity to connect to a network or mobile device
