Fingerprint scanners have been easily available at a consumer level for a number of years now, so it is only logical that they would continue to grow and evolve as time moves on. That's what bring us to this Capacitive Fingerprint Scanner from ADH-Tech. The AD-013 fingerprint sensor module is a combination fingerprint scanner and MCU and provides a UART interface port for easy functionality.
The AD-013 sets itself apart from other finger print scanners with the ability to read a fingerprint's image by pixel array and delivering ridge or valley signals to the A/D converter and digital processor, then to the serial peripheral interface for data-reading. The on-board MCU uses a fingerprint algorithm allowing you, through UART, to use MCU SOC commands to operate module like fingerprint enroll, match operations, and more.
The AD-013 features an image resolution of 508dpi, a recognition time of less than 0.6 seconds, and can store up to 40 high quality templates. Unlike other fingerprint scanners, this version includes an an interface cable with a 6-pin male hook-up output that attaches to the connection port for easy set-up and assembly.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
