Optical fingerprint device and technology vendor SecuGen will be demonstrating the UN20 Bluetooth, a Bluetooth-enabled OEM fingerprint sensor that is FAP 20 certified, small, rugged and affordable at this year’s RSA Conference in San Francisco next month.
According to a company statement, the UN20 Bluetooth uses a Bluetooth interface with a simple and easy-to-use set of commands that allows the developer to capture fingerprint images, extract templates, and to enroll, search and match fingerprint templates all within the UN20 device. The UN20 Bluetooth hardware is FBI certified for use in the FIPS 201 PIV program under the FAP 20 category. Additionally, the template extraction and matching algorithms running on the device are NIST MINEX certified.
The UN20 Bluetooth — the second of SecuGen’s new Unity BDP line of fingerprint products that provide a unique biometric development platform — is intended as an easily embedded fingerprint solution where high quality, rugged design and affordability are key factors.
At the heart of all Unity BDP products is SecuGen’s FAP 20 certified U20 sensor combined with a fully programmable Linux system and integrated into one compact package, providing developers and OEMs to rapidly and efficiently develop a potentially limitless variety of custom designed fingerprint biometric products. SecuGen will be releasing a series of additional UN20 OEM sensors and Unity finished products that will feature different capabilities over the course of the coming months.
“Bluetooth connectivity opens the opportunity to use SecuGen world class technology with a variety of Bluetooth enabled products and platforms,” stated Dan Riley, SecuGen VP of Engineering. “We are very excited to have developed a high quality Bluetooth OEM fingerprint solution that has been repeated asked for by our OEM partners. We are proud to surpass their expectations by offering a fully featured product with an embedded Linux environment at an exceedingly low cost.”
“We listen closely to the needs of our OEM partners,” added Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen. “We are pleased to introduce the highly demanded UN20 Bluetooth, the second of our new Unity Biometric Development Platform product line. The Unity BDP represents years of effort, technological innovation and commitment to delivering the world’s best optical fingerprint readers and sensors.”
