ASAHI GLASS CO., LTD.: Cover Glass that Supports Fingerprint Recognition Sensor
A growing number of smartphones are being equipped with fingerprint recognition features, which provide the improved security required by smartphone-based payment and similar services. While button-type fingerprint recognition sensors are in widespread use, there is an increasing need for smartphones with a clean, waterproof and stylish look, which is achieved by adopting a button-less sensor. Asahi Glass Co., Ltd. (AGC) recently released a cover glass for an in-glass fingerprint recognition sensor for installation on smartphones.
The cover glass reportedly features a high level of strength, a high degree of flatness, and stable fingerprint recognition operation, and has already been shipped to many smartphone makers, IC manufacturers, and assembly/processing companies. The glass is undergoing technical verification prior to application.
