An electronic apparatus comprising a fingerprint sensing device (10) having an array of sensing elements (12) carried on a transparent substrate (35) for sensing capacitively the ridge pattern of a fingerprint placed over the array, in which the transparency of the device is utilised to provide additional capabilities. Thus, an optical sensing device (60) may be disposed beneath the device (10) to sense optically through the device a further biometric characteristic, or the presence, of the finger overlying the sensing element array. Substantial transpar...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.]1. An electronic apparatus comprising a fingerprint sensing device having an array of spaced sensing elements carried on a transparent substrate for sensing capacitively a ridge pattern of a person's fingerprint when placed over the array, each sensing element comprising a sense electrode and an insulating layer overlying the sense electrode, for producing in combination with a fingerprint part overlying the insulating layer a capacitive effect, wherein the sensing elements of the array are substantially transparent with the se...
