NEXT Biometrics has partnered with Arrow Electronics to launch a new turnkey biometric solution for Windows 10 Internet of Things (IoT) platform.

The solution comprises of Arrow Electronics’ community board, DragonBoard 410c, based on the Qualcomm SnapDragon 410 processor, as well as NEXT Biometrics’ fingerprint area sensor embedded module, NB-1411-S.

As previously reported, NEXT Biometrics’ 1411-S module is designed for integration into a range of mass market applications, such as remote controls, tokens and door locks.

“Our joint solution allows system designers to quickly and efficiently add a user friendly, high performance fingerprint-based authentication feature to next generation Internet of Things devices,” said David Spragg, VP of marketing and engineering EMEA at Arrow Electronics.

The U.S.-based Arrow Electronics is a supply chain partner for more than 100,000 original equipment manufacturers.

“With the rapid expansion of new generation of Internet of Things devices, we are excited to be working with Arrow to bring the biometric authentication feature to their quickly growing DragonBoard community,” said Radek Matyasek, VP of sales EMEA at NEXT Biometrics.

Arrow Electronics is showcasing the joint solution at Embedded World in Nurnberg, Germany this week, while NEXT Biometrics is demonstrating the solution at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
