Fingerprint Cards gets first design win for 1020 touch sensor

December 20, 2013 - 

Fingerprint Cards has announced that its new FPC 1020 mobile touch sensor has just won its first major design win from a global tier 1 OEM.

“FPC is the leading global supplier for capacitive touch fingerprint sensors and the leading global supplier for fingerprint sensors in mobile phones and tablets,” Johan Carlström, President and Chief Executive Officer of FPC said. “By combining these strengths, FPC has developed the most attractive mobile touch fingerprint sensor on the planet. It is with great pride that we announce the first DW featuring the FPC1020 and with a Global Tier 1 player in a flagship model. As a result of its superior fingerprint technology, image quality and low power consumption FPC has outdistanced the competition for sockets in mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.”

According to the company, the unnamed OEM has scheduled a launch date for summer, 2014.

Fingerprint Cards has been doing a ton of business lately, announcing new integrations and design wins often.

Reported previously, the company announced that another slew of Pantech phones have integrated its technology and will be available for purchase in Korea. 

Fingerprint Cards launched the FPC1020 sensor last month for Android and Windows devices. 

Shortly after the launch of the 1020 touch sensor, Fingerprint Cards’ stock price jumped nearly 25%.
