NEXT Biometrics’ new ASIC to reduce company production costs

NEXT Biometrics has completed testing of its new ASIC, the A2, a custom built chip that will reduce company production costs by more than $2.50 per module.

According to a company statement, the new ASIC architecture will be implemented in the smartcard, notebook and access control markets.

“With enhanced performance, reduced size and cost reductions, this new ASIC represents a major milestone for NEXT Biometrics,” commented recently appointed CEO Ritu Favre. “It is designed to serve all our targeted markets and the A2 chip is a cornerstone of our company strategy.”

The first volume order for the NEXT chip was placed for production this week.
