Sonavation develops ultrasound biometric authentication solution


Sonavation announced it has developed SonicTouch, an ultrasound biometric authentication solution for digital and device security.

The FIDO-ready system-in-package module is designed to deliver the next generation of identity security and be easily integrated into mobile and IoT devices.

Sonavation said it is currently finalizing design-in specifications and launch schedules with three global tier one mobile device manufacturers.

SonicTouch offers match-in-sensor architecturally flexible design, offering a new generation advancement in trustworthy authentication.

Incorporating the Sonavation 3D ultrasound sensor, SonicTouch offers the industry’s first full-stack solution with the highest level end-to-end encryption architecture that provides a fully encapsulated locked-down module.

Combined with upgradable anti-spoofing and Level 3+ matching systems, secure transaction platforms can be deployed by mobile and IoT device manufacturers, mobile network operators and application developers.

The solution captures the user’s singularly unique acoustic fingerprint signature, whose data is encrypted and never leaves the device.

SonicTouch offers the highest accuracy extract and match capabilities. This allows the authentication in all conditions, regardless of any moisture, dirt or lotion that might be present on a user’s finger.

Considering the importance of device protective glass integrity, SonicTouch was designed to eliminate the need to etch out or cut into the protective display glass, ultimately keeping the full strength of the glass intact.

“The ultra-thin SonicTouch is the comprehensive advancement that will enable the most secure authentication solution for manufacturers,” said Karl Weintz, CEO at Sonavation. “Those looking to deliver secure solutions with a protected touch sensor or touch-under-cover sensor can now guarantee biometrics are easily integrated and convenient to provide a great user experience with cutting-edge authentication options.”

Sonavation aims to expand the growth of biometric technology by providing OEMs with an easily deployable technology which will ultimately increase the security on mobile and IoT devices.

Previously reported, Sonavation successfully developed and bonded an ultrasound biometric sensor that is compatible with Corning Gorilla Glass, providing a high resolution 3D fingerprint image.
