Suprema releases new fingerprint embedded modules

March 14, 2017 - 

Suprema released its new SFM6000 Series fingerprint embedded modules, which delivers up to 5,000 matches per second and a user capacity of up to 25,000 fingerprint templates.

For developers, the SFM6000 Series now allows for easier integration by supporting open source hardware platforms including Arduino and Raspberry pi.

The new module series is designed to provide optimal fingerprint authentication solution for various applications including access control terminals, time attendance devices, door locks, alarm panels, safes, vending machines automotive, ATMs and fast-growing IoT applications.

The series, which is equipped with the range-leading 1GHz CPU and latest Suprema algorithm, offers significant hardware improvements. The result is a more robust solution designed for applications with a harsh environment.

The newly improved optical sensor structure provides IP65-rated ingress protection while its operating temperature has been extended from -15 degrees Celsius to 60 degrees Celsius (5 degrees Fahrenheit to 140 degrees Fahrenheit).

SFM6000 Series also provides complete backward compatibility by maintaining SFM5000 and 3000’s form factor and sensor types, which allows existing customers of these module series to easily adopt SFM6000 Series’ benefits.

“Suprema’s new SFM6000 Series is our answer to dynamic market demands from leading global manufacturers. SFM6000 Series will be the first choice for those who aims to build a best-of-breed fingerprint terminals and will also address growing demand from open source hardware applications,” said Brian Song, CEO at Suprema. ““With biometrics becoming more popular for IoT, SFM6000 Series will provide our customers better opportunity to penetrate their business into this emerging market,” Song added.

Earlier this month, Suprema announced its SFU-S20 fingerprint module is now integrated in the new BioWolf LE, a rugged tablet PC from BioRugged.
