Fingerprint Cards gets ramp order for biometric touch sensors

May 5, 2014 - 

Fingerprint Cards has just received the first ramp order of US$2.75 million (SEK 18M) for its FPC 1020 sensor, related to previous orders and a design win for a Global Tier 1 OEM smartphone flagship model.

According to the company, it expects to ship more than three million units for this flagship device alone.

“FPC is the leading global supplier of capacitive touch fingerprint sensors and the leading global supplier of fingerprint sensors in mobile phones and tablets. By combining these strengths, FPC has developed the most attractive mobile touch fingerprint sensor on the planet,” Johan Carlström, President and Chief Executive Officer of FPC said. “It is with great pride that we announce a follow-up order for the ramp so soon after the first purchase order for the FPC 1020 related to a smartphone and with a Global Tier 1 player, on track for a timely launch. FPC’s superior fingerprint technology, image quality and low power consumption have distanced FPC from any competition for touch sensors in mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.”

Fingerprint Cards recently published an interim report for the first quarter of 2014 and according to the Carlstrom, the quarter was stronger than expected.

Reported previously, FPC recently announced an order for $US 4.62 million from its distributor in China and Taiwan. 

FPC launched the 1020 capacitive touch sensor in November, 2013.
