Fingerprint Cards announces WWTT launch, new production order


World Wide Touch Technology has commercially launched its FingerQ products with embedded Fingerprint Cards fingerprint sensors, starting in Asian markets.

FingerQ specifically manufactures cases for Android phones that include embedded fingerprint sensors. Fingerprint Cards has already delivered 400,000 of its FPC1080A swipe sensors to WWTT for the initial order and another 400,000 are set to be delivered for the remainder of the year.

“We congratulate WWTT on this launch which is another milestone for FPC. It is our first launch in a consumer product in China and our first major launch of our own swipe sensor module FPC1080A,” Johan Carlström, President and CEO of Fingerprint Cards AB said. “The superior characteristics as lowest power consumption and best image quality as well as the attractive cost of 1080A, maintaining the best performance in the market, makes this product increasingly attractive for our customers. We are excited to hear WWTT’s aggressive launch plans for FingerQ globally.”

As you’ll recall, reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, Fingerprint Cards received the initial 800,000 unit production order from WWTT in January of this year.

WWTT has also recently invested roughly $5 million into IDEX ASA, representing 2.2 percent of the Norwegian company’s expanded share capital.

Fingerprint Cards has also announced another significant order – worth $3.7 million (SEK 24 million) – from a distributor in China and Taiwan, Hardware & Software Technologies Co. for its area sensor technology. The order is scheduled to be delivered in Q4 2013 and the first half of 2014.

“This order confirms our strong market leading position in the Chinese market for capacitive area sensors, where FPC has a market share exceeding 80%,” Carlström said.
