SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 28, 2015--
Inc. (NYSE:INVN), the leading provider of MEMS sensor platforms,
today announced it has released for OEM review UltraPrint™,
its ultrasonic fingerprint imaging solution, manufactured on the
proprietary InvenSense CMOS-MEMS Platform (ICMP), offering ramp to
production in calendar year 2017. As the world’s largest fabless MEMS
SOC innovator and source for the eutectically bonded ICMP, InvenSense
ships, on average, over twelve million motion or audio sensor SOCs each
week to leading global mobile and IoT OEMs.
By adding aluminum nitride-based piezoelectric capacity to its platform,
InvenSense is enabling, for the first time, mass manufacture of unique
piezoelectric Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers (pMUT) and transducer
arrays, with each transducer element individually controllable through
direct wafer-level interconnect to the CMOS ASIC.
This dramatic advancement in acoustic imaging technology will allow
manufacturers to seamlessly integrate, on a platform proven capable of
accommodating exceptionally high volumes, detailed fingerprint images
from the epidermal to dermal layers, and to do so directly through glass
or metal, even in the presence of oil, lotions, perspiration or other
moisture, and other common contaminants that can easily undermine legacy
capacitive solutions. These critical factors enhance live finger
authentication and guard against spoofing, thereby increasing security.
Fari Assaderaghi, InvenSense’s Vice President Advanced Technology,
commented: “Our proprietary UltraPrint technology is expected to enable,
for the first time, deployment of ultrasonic fingerprint solutions under
glass, as well as a myriad of other surfaces. This flexibility in sensor
placement without cutting a hole in display glass, aluminum, steel or
plastic case material is highly valued by mobile and other OEMs. Our
innovative team is excited to work with equally motivated partners to
quickly bring this new technology to market.”
Mo Maghsoudnia, InvenSense’s Vice President Worldwide Manufacturing,
added: “As a leading innovator in MEMS and sensor technology globally,
and the world’s only fabless MEMS SOC vendor selling hundreds of
millions of motion and audio sensors each year, we have a proven track
record of rapidly ramping up innovative new MEMS solutions into mass
production. We’re excited to extend the InvenSense CMOS-MEMS Platform to
pMUT devices and enable a breakthrough authentication solution for
leading mobile and IoT products.”
