Tier-one smartphone customer selects IDEX fingerprint sensor

July 20, 2016 - 

Norwegian fingerprint technology firm IDEX recently announced that a tier-one smartphone customer has selected the firms’ Cardinal touch fingerprint sensor for integration into a mobile handset.

According to a statement by the company, the design win further validates the price-performance value proposition that the company’s fingerprint sensor products and technology bring to the mobile market.

“Following IDEX’s announcement on 2 June 2016 of a design win where the IDEX Cardinal sensor was selected as a feature in a tier-one OEM smartphone market launch, we are very pleased to secure a second important design win with a leading mobile customer,” said Dr. Hemant Mardia, CEO of IDEX. “This design win along with IDEX’s shift towards a more direct sales approach is contributing to a growing and exciting pipeline of customer opportunities. Our sensors are competitive on both price and performance for compact form factors, and we expect to secure additional design wins across our family of sensors in the coming quarters.”

In June, LG launched their new Stylus 2 Plus smartphone featuring the IDEX touch fingerprint sensor Cardinal Q.
