Card integrators in Asia Pacific sampling IDEX biometric modules and sensors
IDEX revealed that several new card integrators in Asia Pacific are sampling its polymer smartcard sensors for access control and government ID applications.
“Deployment of biometric authentication solutions for smart cards is accelerating globally, and we are receiving strong interest for our sensors from a range of large-scale end-customers and ecosystem partners,” explained Dr. Hemant Mardia. “Card integrators are giving consistent feedback that our sensors are uniquely ready for card mass production. Our priority is driving leadership in multiple large verticals in the card market.”
IDEX recently expanded its sensor solution by launching an ultra-compact matcher algorithm optimized for biometric cards. The product solutions currently sampling include biometric modules, which are complete and easy-to-implement, as well as biometric sensors, which give the card integrators increased flexibility in design.
The company says its off-chip technology enables a differentiated solution ideally suited for smart card integration.
