IDEX receives first order for off-chip touch fingerprint sensor from WWTT


IDEX ASA has received the first production order for its new off-chip fingerprint sensor product from World Wide Touch Technology Holding Ltd (WWTT).

This is the first volume order for the fingerprint sensor which is the core platform for IDEX’s new range of fingerprint touch sensors which it launched earlier this year.

The order is an upgrade of WWTT’s previous order for IDEX’s first generation silicon sensors.

IDEX’s new off-chip fingerprint sensors use the company’s next generation sensor technology as well as offer a cost-effective price, high performance and form factor benefits compared with the traditional silicon based products .

These benefits make IDEX’s off-chip fingerprint sensors ideal for both the mobile device and the card payment markets.

Leading OEMs from both of these markets have provided positive feedback regarding the off-chip fingerprint sensors upon trialling the products, said IDEX.

The company said it is also proceeding with its initiative to secure OEM trials for the in-glass version of its off-chip sensor with a major Fortune 500 partner.

Sensing in the glass leads to higher quality fingerprint images than those from sensors which are placed under the glass as a result of the blurring effect of the glass screen which has to be made thick enough to prevent cracking.

IDEX is also commercializing the technology for use in biometric cards where the off-chip sensor’s thin and flexible nature lends itself to certain advantages.

The company is partnering with a major global payments company to develop these solutions.
