Abstract

A 500dpi capacitive-type CMOS fingerprint sensor with pixel-level adaptive image enhancement scheme is discussed. A virtually-grounded metal shield effectively suppresses the parasitic capacitances without extra circuits and a configurable diffusion network is used to generate a adaptive local threshold level for pixel-level image enhancement. Capacitve-type CMOS fingerprint sensors have advantages of compact size and low-power consumption compared to optical sensors without any requirement of additional components.
