Folding screen mobile phones have put forward new technical requirements for the industrial chain. For offline fingerprint technology, CTO Piper of Huiding Technologies said in an interview that new technologies such as folding screen are challenges and opportunities for Huiding, but it is not difficult for folding screen to make offline fingerprint. The goal of convergence is to achieve the best optical fingerprint until the user is satisfied.
Folding screen screen fingerprint is not difficult
Off-screen fingerprint mobile phones have become the standard of mainstream mobile phones. IHSMARKIT predicts that off-screen fingerprint mobile phones will usher in explosive growth in the future. The market is mainly optical. In 2019, the expected shipment volume will reach 175 million units, and CAGR will reach 77% in the next four years.
As of February 2019, Huiding Technologies has applied for and obtained 500 + patents at home and abroad.
In 2019, MWC handset manufacturers showed a new terminal form: folding screen handsets. In this regard, Huiding Technology CTO Piper said that new technologies such as folding screen are challenges to Huiding and are based on it, but it is not difficult for folding screen to make fingerprints under the screen. Huiding will continue to plough deep into the technology of optical fingerprint under the screen, providing innovative products with unique value.
At present, Huiding has developed a competitive large area offline fingerprint scheme, but Piper also acknowledges that the performance of the large screen is incomparable with the current offline optical fingerprint performance. The goal of convergence is to achieve the best optical fingerprint.
So this year, we will concentrate on technological optimization and upgrading in a small area. If we only do it for a larger area, its just for gimmicks, and its not very meaningful. Piper said.
5-10 years layout of IoT Market
In addition to mobile phones and tablet smart devices, Huiding Technologies has entered the field of IoT with a market scale of 100 billion yuan. After three years of exploration in the core technology fields of analog and hybrid circuits, optical sensing, low power wireless connection technology and algorithms, Huiding formally launched the Sensor+MCU+Security+Connectivity integrated platform. Connectivity includes BLE and NB-IoT.
According to Piper, Huiding Technologies BLE will start mass production soon, and NB-IoT will start mass production in Q2.
According to IHSMarkit, a world-renowned Market Research institute, the number of NB-IoT connections will reach 450 million in 2021. According to Technavios forecast, the annual composite growth rate (CAGR) of the global NB-IoT chip market will reach 61% from 2017 to 2021. For this huge IoT market, Huiding is ready for long-term investment. It is understood that Zhang Fan, chairman of Huiding Science and Technology, has put forward a 10-year development plan to start the IoT field.
In addition to the field of IoT, the touch control of Huiding Technology has entered the automotive market. It is exploring fingerprint products in the fields of door handles, startengine keys, etc. and using touch chip on touch screen to expand its product line through these cooperation. (quiet)
