Synaptics expands Natural ID portfolio with FS4600 fingerprint sensors


Synaptics has released a new Synaptics FS4600 line of Natural ID fingerprint sensors, providing high-performance, convenient and secure biometric authentication for mainstream and affordable smartphones.

FS4600 fingerprint sensors support square, round, pill shape, and slim rectangular buttons for the front, back or side of mobile devices.

The buttons enable OEMs to choose between three types of coatings including polymers, ceramics or glass.

Other key value-added features include support for two Android soft buttons, force sensing and swipe navigation. The FS4600 sensors are backed by Synaptics’ SentryPoint security software.

“The FS4600 family is a terrific extension to our industry-leading Natural ID portfolio, offering compelling, feature-rich capabilities and performance to a broader mass market that is rapidly adopting fingerprint sensors,” said Anthony Gioeli, vice president of marketing at Synaptics’ biometrics product division.

SentryPoint Security Suite includes Quantum Matcher for fingerprint template authentication, PurePrint anti-spoof technology, and SecureLink 256-bit AES with TLS 1.2 encryption.

All Synaptics Natural ID solutions are FIDO Certified (Fast IDentity Online), which provides a wide range of compliance with an industry-wide ecosystem of products.

The company’s new Natural ID FS4600 fingerprint sensors are set to sample in Q2 2017 with mass production in Q3 2017.

In January, Synaptics reported financial results for its second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2016, which saw a net revenue of $461.3 million representing a 19 percent increase from Q1 2017 and a 2 percent decline from Q2 2016.
