Fingerprint technology firm SecuGen, has announced the introduction of UN20 Serial, a stand-alone high performance, low cost, optical fingerprint sensor.
The UN20 Serial OEM sensor integrates SecuGen’s FAP 20 certified, optical fingerprint sensor with a 1 GHz CPU and SecuGen’s library of NIST certified template extraction and matching algorithms and provides an open Linux development environment for developers to add their own functionality.
The UN20 Serial offers high quality image capture, NIST tested algorithms, a fast 1 GHz processor, and a highly flexible architecture, altogether priced at a low price.
This is the first product to be released in the Unity biometric development platform (BDP) product family. Other products in the Unity BDP family to be announced over the next few months will include additional interfaces, such as USB, as well as hardware expansion boards that allow virtually limitless expandability.
“For many years we have focused exclusively on delivering to our OEM partners the tools they need to compete successfully in this highly competitive industry,” commented Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen. “The UN20 Serial is the first of an amazing new product line, the Unity Biometric Development Platform (BDP). Unity BDP is the culmination of a decade of effort. We are very proud to be able to deliver the first product of its kind, a complete biometric development platform that is compact and affordable.”
VP of Engineering Dan Riley added, “the SecuGen engineering team has come up with a new approach to delivering world class OEM sensors. The UN20 Serial is not just a sensor, it is an entire development platform. The uses for this product are nearly limitless. It represents a giant leap forward in OEM fingerprint technology.”
SecuGen will release the UN20 Serial in Q1 2016 and will be demonstrating it at the upcoming CES 2016 show in Las Vegas in January.
