February 18, 2016 - 

Fingerprint Cards (FPC) announced that, in collaboration with Taiwanese touch solution provider TPK, they have successfully made cover glass prototypes integrating the FPC1268 touch fingerprint sensor

The partnership effectively allows FPC and TPK to deliver new innovative industrial design options for smartphones and other devices.

“By teaming up with TPK, we combine TPK’s extensive industry experience and strong technology know-how in cover glass and lamination technology, with the industry-leading performance of FPC1268,” said Jörgen Lantto, president and CEO of FPC. “As result we can together provide a highly compelling offering to the smartphone manufacturers, making it possible to mount the fingerprint sensor under the cover glass.”

The recently launched FPC1268 is a touch fingerprint sensor that can be mounted under the cover glass of the smartphone.

FPC recently posted a video introduction to FPC1268.

“We are proud to team up with FPC, the world’s leading supplier of fingerprint sensors,” said Michael Chung, CEO of TPK. “We are looking forward to contribute with TPK market leading lamination technology and cover glass experience to enable mass production of mobile devices where the FPC1268 sensor is completely hidden behind cover glass. Our partnership, combining the major strengths of our respective offering, enables smartphone manufacturers to bring forward new highly attractive industrial designs.”

Earlier this week, Fingerprint Cards (FPC) introduced FPCLiveTouch, a security solution for fingerprint sensors that can identify and reject spoofing attempts (fake fingerprints) without requiring additional hardware and without impact on verification time.
