Both devices use Fingerprint Cards’ touch fingerprint sensor FPC1035 and Precise Biometrics’ algorithm solution for fingerprint recognition in mobile devices, Precise BioMatch Mobile. The fingerprint algorithm is based on Precise Biometrics’ standardized extractor and matcher technology, which is ISO 19794-2 compliant.
Earlier this year, 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. FPCLiveTouch is compatible with all touch fingerprint sensors in FPC’s product portfolio.
