Fingerprint technology firm SecuGen will be showcasing the UN20 Serial, a stand-alone, high performance, low cost, optical fingerprint sensor at the RSA Conference 2016 to be held in San Francisco at the end of the month.
The UN20 Serial OEM sensor integrates SecuGens FAP 20 certified, optical fingerprint sensor with a 1 GHz CPU and SecuGen’s library of NIST certified template extraction and matching algorithms. In addition, the UN20 Serial provides an open Linux development environment so developers can add their own functionality.
This is the first product to be released in the Unity Biometric Development Platform (BDP) product family. Other products in the Unity BDP family will be announced over the next few months and will include additional interfaces, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Ethernet, as well as hardware expansion boards that allow virtually limitless expandability.
Jeff Brown, VP of Sales and Marketing for SecuGen demonstrated the UN20 Serial optical fingerprint sensor along with the Unity Biometric Development Platform exclusively for BiometricUpdate.com at CES earlier this year.
”The SecuGen engineering team has come up with a new approach to delivering world class OEM sensors”, commented VP of Engineering Dan Riley. ”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.”
Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen, added, “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.”
