Reliable and Flexible Operations

With golden fingers for connection, MT20 scan engine can be firmly mounted on the host PCB with soldering, which not only increases mechanical reliability but reduces cost and risk incurred in installing flex cable and connector. MT20 provides analog output directly to the host, which can be processed by developer's own software decoder with all kinds of desired features and functionalities.
