The Integrated Biometrics eCurve fingerprint module is the embedded version of the Curve single finger scanner. While curve is designed to be a peripheral component to systems, the IB eCurve is designed to be a part of the system in an embedded form. The module comes especially designed for OEM and integrator applications. It uses FBI recognised standard WSQ compression techniques for the images it captures. The Integrated Biometrics eCurve consists of the sensor and the board. The sensor is ergonomically designed with a curved platen to avoid distortions while scanning. It is also designed to be highly compact occupying an area of 70 mm (diameter) x 30 mm (height).
Embedded modules must be highly power efficient to be feasible. The eCurve consumes less than 110 mA when operating and is equipped with the touch and go feature which helps it to turn off automatically after scanning. Thus the module is highly power efficient and sought out for in OEM applications.
