Semico MEMS and Sensor Database Report Update: Focus on Biometrics

Passwords are so passe these days.  They have been proven to be unreliable and hackable.  For protecting today’s electronics, the latest technology is biometrics, the measurement of both physiological and behavioral human characteristics.  Biometrics can be used for both identification (scanning a crowd for a face) or authentication (confirming that the user is who they say they are).  Apple’s introduction of Touch ID, based on its acquisition of Authentec, ushered in fingerprint recognition on smartphones.  New fingerprint sensor technology in the form of ultrasonic sensors will be the nex
