DigitalPersona U.are.U 5100 Fingerprint Scanner Module

The U.are.U 5100 Module is a miniature USB fingerprint reader designed for integration into OEM equipment where fingerprint verification or identification is needed. It is tailored to the unique form-factor, power, usability and durability requirements of mobile ID devices, particularly those used in public-facing Civil ID applications such as voting, benefits-checking and micro-finance.

This self-contained module optically scans the fingerprint when the user touches the glass imaging window. Optical technology offers the highest combination of durability and ease of use.

The U.are.U 5100 Module is designed to simplify OEM integration. The top surface of the module is IP64-rated, sealed against dust and liquids*. Its compact size and convenient mounting features help it fit easily into even small devices. The on-board electronics automatically control calibration and data transfer over the USB interface.

The U.are.U 5100 is designed to meet and exceed the FIPS 201 Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Image Quality Specification, a key industry standard. It produces 500 and 1000 dot-per-inch (dpi) fingerprint images in ANSI and ISO/IEC standard formats.

The U.are.U 5100 Module can be used with any standards-compatible fingerprint templates extractor or matcher, including the DigitalPersona® FingerJet Biometric Engine, VeriFinger and MegaMatcher Standard and Extended SDK's and the Fulcrum Biometric Framework including the FbF Bioserver and Device Listener.
