FPC to Develop Asic for CrucialTec following Biometric Track Pad Success
Fingerprint Cards (FPC) and CrucialTec have signed its second joint development and production agreement in the span of one month.
This new agreement is for an enhanced new asic to target mobile phones, digital cameras and remote controller and other numerous digital consumer products.
This is an extension of a successful cooperation between these companies after a fruitful collaboration with Biometric Track Pads where FPC’s silicon technology has been combined with CrucialTec’s customized products for Tier 1 mobile phone manufacturers.
“Since our initial collaboration in Biometric Track Pad solution has begun, two companies have seen, in our partnership, pleasing our customers with valuable product,” said Charles Ahn, CEO of CrucialTec. “With this new engagement, both companies will be able to expand feasible market size to a great extent and bring another big milestone in our business history.”
In this particular partnership, FPC will be venturing into an entirely new market. It will develop the new asic that will be integrated into CrucialTec new modules to cater to potential customers for mobile phones and other digital products. With such a vast market, this new collaboration is targeting millions of units to be out as early as 2013.
John Carlström, CEO of FPC, is pleased to go into this second joint development and production agreement with CrucialTec after having been impressed by how fast CrucialTec works in bringing products out in the market, especially the use of silicon into Tier 1 mobile phone manufacturers.
“This shows that our cooperation regarding the already announced Biometric Track Pad has been very fruitful and is yet recognition of FPC’s world-leading asic and biometric technology,” he said.
