Fingerprint Cards introduces embedded biometric module
Fingerprint Cards (FPC) introduced an embedded biometric module solution in a compact form factor that brings FPC’s capacitive fingerprint technology into a range of new applications, including access control, industry and healthcare, automotive, and Internet of Things (IoT).
The FPC-BM module is a complete embedded biometric fingerprint solution, including a robust FPC fingerprint sensor with a biometric processor and on-board template storage. It can be used standalone, ready to use out-of-the-box at delivery, or connected to a host as an easy-to-integrate embedded solution. Simple serial commands are used to enrol and verify.
FPC-BM is compatible with touch fingerprint sensors FPC1020 and FPC1021, and the ubiquitous area sensor FPC1011. An IP67-class (dust and waterproof) configuration is also available making the FPC-BM suitable for demanding industrial conditions and all-weather applications.
“With the introduction of the FPC-BM series of biometric modules, FPC shows continued commitment to expanding the application of our sensors, software, and technology across all market segments,” said Jörgen Lantto, president and CEO of FPC. “In doing so, FPC strengthens its position in those market segments where we see positive indications of an increasing global demand for embedded biometric solutions.”
FPC-BM will be ready for mass production during Q2 2016. The first commercial applications incorporating the FPC-BM are expected in Q3 2016.
