Suprema fingerprint solutions integrated in Samsung smartphones, IdentaZone matching system
Suprema announced that its BioSign mobile fingerprint authentication algorithm has been included in Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 and Galaxy A7 (for SK Telecom) smartphone models.
Partnering with Taiwan-based sensor provider Egis Technology, Suprema provides its integrated solution to global smartphone manufacturers.
Introduced in February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, BioSign 2.0 features the latest AI technology, supports small fingerprint sensors and delivers robust authentication performance over time and environment.
BioSign 2.0 offers flexibility in integration by supporting different shapes and types of fingerprint sensors.
The solution is ideal for mid-to-low range smartphones as it lowers production cost by supporting smaller sensors and provides higher fingerprint authentication performance with low-end processors.
BioSign 2.0 achieves 50ms authentication speed in high-end smartphones with high performance processors and 100ms speed with low-end processors while guaranteeing a maximum false acceptance rate (FAR) of 0.0005 percent.
While smartphone users tend to be experience decreasing fingerprint authentication performance over usage time, BioSign 2.0’s self-learning algorithm increases accuracy over usage.
The algorithm can process authentication with small area (2mm x 2mm) of fingerprint biometrics data and provides consistent performance with different shapes of sensors including bar, square and slim shapes.
“BioSign 2.0 is the most economical and efficient solution in mid-to-low range smartphones,” said Brian Song, CEO at Suprema. “Start from this Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 and Galaxy A7 models, we are expecting BioSign 2.0 in various global smartphone models. As BioSign is software based solution, it will contribute both Suprema’s revenue and profitability.”
In a separate announcement, Suprema revealed that its BioMini Slim 2 is integrated into biometric matching system IdentaMaster/IdentaMaster.Pro.
Developed by biometrics firm IdentaZone, IdentaMaster/IdentaMaster.Pro is the first system of its kind designed for consumer and enterprise use.
IdentaMaster/IdentaMaster.Pro is an identity management and encryption with biometric authentication solution that is compatible with and interoperable with a range of biometric devices and biometric technologies currently available on the market.
While IdentaMaster/IdentaMaster.Pro works with a wide range of fingerprint scanners, the company has made its latest integration with Suprema BioMini Slim 2.
“We do not doubt that users of our solutions and services highly appreciate the high quality of various types of Suprema scanners, especially their newest scanner BioMini Slim 2, as well as other, already well-proven Suprema scanners,” Michael Milgram, CEO of IdentaZone, said. “Our numerous customers will be able to take advantage of our software, due to its interchangeability and interoperability, using it in their work, constantly improving the line of Suprema scanners.”
The scanner is the world’s slimmest (16mm in thickness) FAP20 optical sensor, generating high fingerprint image quality.
BioMini Slim 2 is equipped with several features including Suprema’s proprietary multi-dynamic range(MDR) technology, FBI PIV/FIPS 201/Mobile ID FAP20 compliance, full-speed USB 2.0 interface and Android device support.
“At Suprema, we are thrilled to add IdentaZone to our expanding portfolio of supported biometric solutions,” says Bogun Park, CEO at Suprema ID Inc. “As Suprema focuses on the US market, we’d like to take symbiotic advantage of partnering with leading technology vendors like IdentaZone. With Suprema joining the IdentaZone ecosystem of technology partners, we will be able to provide full benefits of our BioMini range fingerprint scanners to customers worldwide.”
