upektc is part of libfprint and was developed by Jan-Michael Brummer.
This driver supports the device found in the Samsung P35 laptop, also it supports standalone UPEK EikonTouch 300 device.
This driver does not support the UPEK Touch``Strip found in a lot of other laptops. Such hardware is supported by the upekts driver instead.
This driver is an adaption of the code found in Jan-Michael Brummer's UPEK TouchChip driver project. These efforts were based on bus traffic analysis from the UPEK Windows driver. Eikon``Touch 300 support was based on patch from Moganeshwaran Rajasegaran
This is an imaging device that returns greyscale images with 208x288 pixels.
