New Microsoft keyboard features Fingerprint Cards sensor

June 16, 2017 - 

Fingerprint Cards‘ touch sensor FPC1025 is featured in Microsoft’s Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID, the first keyboard to include an invisible fingerprint sensor hidden in a normal looking key.

“We’re really excited to see Microsoft launch this ground-breaking product and happy to see our industry-leading technology featured in it,” said Niklas Strid, Senior Vice President, Business Line PC and Embedded, at Fingerprint Cards. “We’re delighted to support such a large and influential industry player, it’s a testimonial of our products performance.”

“Security requirements within PC are very high, so this launch is also proof that we’re able to expand with our existing product offering,” continued Strid. “Regarding the typical use case, the development within this segment is quite similar as for mobile, so typically, our technology will allow the users to unlock their computers and make secure purchases”,

Just last month a report by MS Power User revealed that Microsoft would soon release a desktop keyboard with a built-in fingerprint identification reader.
