Next Biometrics Access 200 Sensor

Our Access 200 sensor features a high-quality 12×12 mm active sensing area for good image quality at low biometric error rates in small-footprint devices. It is ideally suited for mass market applications in need of both, security and convenience.

Next Biometrics Access 200 Sensor is a high quality fingerprint area sensor module designed for integration into custom application products including notebooks, tablets, time and attendance terminals, and card readers. It can also be integrated into devices requiring enhanced operating and storage temperature conditions such as out- door access control readers, door locks and mobile devices.

It relies on the Next Biometrics sensor mounted on a small printed circuit board for seamless hardware integration. The thin form factor of the module is ideally suited for a broad range of applications with seamless hardware integration. The module connects to the host system via a SPI interface using a flex cable.
