New IR LED for iris scanners
Iris pattern scanning is regarded as one of the most reliable biometric methods for personal identification. This technology has recently been adopted in smartphones and tablets. In 2014 Osram Opto Semiconductors launched the Oslux SFH 4780S specifically for this application. Now Osram has brought out a new version, the SFH 4786S, which is only 1.6 mm high and therefore also suitable for very thin devices.
