Clevo notebooks to include Synaptics SecurePad for biometric authentication


Synaptics’ SecurePad technology is now featured on Clevo’s new line of high-performance notebooks, according to a report by MS Power User.

The notebooks are being sold under various brands including Aftershock, Azom Systems, CJscope, Monster, and Sage.

Synaptics SecurePad technology offers the same functionality of the TouchPad — including scrolling, pointing, navigation, selection — in addition to an integrated area fingerprint sensor.

Using the technology, notebook designers are able to integrate an area fingerprint sensor into a TouchPad.

A TouchPad with biometric sensors provides a high level of security without compromising the design and size of the notebook.

“SecurePad delivers both the world class TouchPad and touch fingerprint sensor in a single module to Clevo’s gaming product line,” said Godfrey Cheng, vice president of marketing for Synaptics’ human interface systems division. “This allows for a clean industrial design and provides gamers with both advance TouchPad functionality and also provides a modern fingerprint sensor so that gamers can securely log into their notebook and can conveniently replace unsafe passwords by using their fingerprint for authentication. By working with Clevo, Synaptics will bring to gamers the double benefit of improved security and improved convenience.”

Synaptics SecurePad also supports Windows Hello based authentication feature, which allows users to sign in by looking at their screen.

Previously reported, Synaptics collaborated with TCL Communication to provide fingerprint sensor technology solution to its Alcatel smartphone customers.
