IDEX gets big production order for swipe sensors from WWTT


IDEX has just nabbed a new volume order from World Wide Touch Technology for 300,000 of its Colibri swipe sensors.

According to the company, the sensors are expected to be delivered after the first quarter of 2014. This represents IDEX’s first commercial launch for the Colibri swipe sensor.

“We are excited to be placing our first order of IDEX’s cutting-edge fingerprint sensing technology to be used in our FIngerQ product line,” Kelvin Wong, CEO of WWTT said. “We believe IDEX’s unique product roadmap will help us to continue delivering innovative biometric products to the mass market.”

Reported previously, WWTT recently invested $5.03 million in IDEX, totalling 2.2 percent of the Norwegian company’s expanded share capital.

“This order by WWTT represents an important milestone in IDEX commercialization phase,” CEO Hemant Mardia of IDEX said. “We are very pleased to be working even more closely with one of the early adopters of consumer fingerprint biometrics. WWTT is already shipping and launching several biometric products within the consumer electronics space and is rapidly expanding their FingerQ biometric authentication platform, providing consumers cloud-based security and convenience. This is a significant opportunity for large-scale deployment of IDEX fingerprint sensors.”
