Fingerprint sensors

Here are the fingerprint sensors that have at least existed once, excepted (simple) optical sensors.

I know, this is a very very long page, because there are many tentatives and products, and I decidedto get all of them in one page -because having a hundred pages to manually manage would be tedious!

So I propose as a start just a list where you can click to go to the manufacturer you want to see.Another solution is to use the "find in the page" of your brother, or use google.

Silicon manufacturers are fabricating these sensors.
