“Our U.are.U SDK for Android gives developers the integration tools needed to use standards-based, optical fingerprint readers with their Android applications,” Chris Trytten, director of biometrics product management at DigitalPersona said. “The addition of Android to our U.are.U SDK offering provides developers with the choice of platform that best fits their needs.”

According to the company, the SDK embraces image and template standards and has a MINEX-certified extractor to help match algorithms and to comply with what it says is a growing customer requirement for standards support.
