NEXT Biometrics shipped its two millionth fingerprint sensor in April, proving its ability to consistently mass produce fingerprint sensors with industry normal yield figures.
The company also announced two executive hires with Dan Cronin joining the company as Executive Vice President of Engineering and Zehira Dadon-Sitbon as Vice President of Product and Program Management.
Both have more than thirty years of experience in the semiconductor industry, with Cronin holding senior executive level positions at IBM, Motorola, Freescale and NXP and Dadon-Sitbon running complex multi-discipline programs at companies including Motorola, Philips, Freescale and Synaptics.
“The recent executive hires prove our ability to attract top semiconductor industry talent,” said NEXT Biometrics CEO Ritu Favre. “We are now taking a number of steps toward becoming a leading supplier of high-quality large fingerprint sensors. Production is running at high yields, and coupled with our new ASIC we are able to ramp up volumes to meet the increasing demand for our cost efficient large-size fingerprint sensors.”
