Fingerprint Cards (FPC) has announced yet another significant production order for its swipe sensor. This time, the Swedish company received an order of 275,000 units for its swipe sensor technology for the Japanese smartphone market.
According to the company, this order is set to be delivered in mid-May 2013. This order comes just two weeks after the announcement of an initial volume of 100,000 units for Japanese smartphones scheduled for launch in this year’s second quarter.
“The timing of this additional mass production order is earlier than previously expected and confirms that our launch in the Japanese mobile phone market is progressing well,” Johan Carlström, President and CEO of Fingerprint Cards said.
Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, FPC has announced some significant business milestones over the past few months. Recently, the company announced its latest design win — for its FPC 1080A swipe sensor and it’s from a Chinese Tier 2 smartphone brand, which supplies products in China and India.
FPC has been growing rapidly since last year. Reported previously, Fingerprint Cards has been receiving a large amount of orders and design-wins as of late. As we’ve noted 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.
Just yesterday, the company announced the appointment of its newest financial advisor and an exercise of warrants.
