Goodix’s IFS™ technology is based on capacitive fingerprint
authentication technology and not only enables more convenient
fingerprint authentication, but also better phone design and user
experience. The unique design integrates hardware and software solutions
which include an innovative chip design and software algorithm. The IFS™

devices and then quickly and accurately scans, compares and
authenticates it. As the technology is integrated into the glass panel,
there is no need to drill a hole into the phone, providing greater
design flexibility to manufacturers as well as enabling a more generous
screen-to-body area ratio. This design also helps to improve the overall
water and dust resistance.
