Fingerprint Cards (FPC) is opening yet another international office, this time, for development in Lund Sweden. The company has also announced its latest appointment: Sebastian Weber, as Manager of System and Software Development.
FPC has been growing at a rapid rate, since last year. Reported previously, Fingerprint Cards has been receiving a large amount of orders and design-wins as of late. Recently, the company announced another significant smartphone design win from a smartphone manufacturer in China.
As we’ve reported in BiometricUpdate.com, Fingerprint Cards has announced several design-wins in China and Japan, as well as a third Asian country in the last 6 months.
According to the company, FPC is in considerable need of strengthening its software and system development resuorces. This effort includes the appointment of Weber, who will work primarily with algorithms and software, but will also bear system responsibility for the overall performance of the company’s sensor technology.
Weber comes to FPC with a solid background in system development and software for the mobile space. He joins FPC from ST-Erisccon, where held the position of Senior Program Manager for modern products and the Director of Linux SW Engineering.
“Sebastian is a fantastic addition to our team during FPC’s currently strong expansion phase. His broad experience, knowledge and network make him the right person to pursue the development of the system function for our sensors and software for mobile phones,” Jörgen Lantto, Executive Vice President, CTO and Head of Strategy and Product Development for FPC said.
“We are now paving the way for a continued expansion in the area around Lund, where world-class expertise in mobile technology is available, particularly in mobile platforms and software. This will help us continue to develop tomorrow’s solutions, which will strengthen and cement our established position as the world’s leading supplier of fingerprint technology for the mobile industry.”
