Goodix Live Finger Detection Takes The Gold

Goodix, a developer of human interface and biometric solutions for mobile devices, announces its Live Finger Detection fingerprint sensor won a Gold Edison Award in the Applied Technology category. Receiving a Gold Edison Award, a most prestigious accolade, demonstrates the leading position of Goodix in the international integrated circuit (IC) design industry.

 

The Live Finger Detection sensor is described as the world’s first integrated live fingerprint authentication solution, providing both biometric security and live identity protection. It captures the biometrics of the finger itself combined with heartbeat authentication. The two-factor process first scans to determine whether or not the fingerprint is “live.”
