Fingerprint Cards gets pre-ramp production order for touch sensors

 

Fingerprint Cards has just received an initial pre-ramp purchase order, worth US$ 600k (SEK 4M) for its FPC 1020 touch sensor.

According to the company, this new order is related to the production of a Tier 1 flagship smartphone. This current order is set for delivery in May 2014, and according to the company, it expects to ship more than three million units for this particular flagship device alone.

“FPC is the leading global supplier of capacitive touch fingerprint sensors and the leading global supplier of fingerprint sensors in mobile phones and tablets. By combining these strengths, FPC has developed the most attractive mobile touch fingerprint sensor on the planet,” Johan Carlström, President and Chief Executive Officer of FPC said. “It is with great pride that we announce the first purchase order for the FPC 1020 related to a smartphone and with a Global Tier 1 player, on track for a timely launch. FPC’s superior fingerprint technology, image quality and low power consumption have distanced FPC from any competition for touch sensors in mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.”

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, in December 2013, FPC announced the first major design win for its 1020 sensor. According to the company, that previous order is related to this most recent one.

Late last month, the company announced an order worth $US4.62 million from its distributor in China and Taiwan, Hardware & Software Technologies.
