Fingerprint Cards working with NXP on biometric payment card technology

 

Fingerprint Cards announced that it is working with NXP Semiconductors on its new high performing contactless, biometric payment cards.

NXP’s secure fingerprint authentication solution for cards does not require a battery and easily fits into standard card maker equipment as part of the broader payment ecosystem. Cards with fingerprint authentication are fully compliant with existing EMVCo POS systems.

“We chose Fingerprints’ sensor technology as they are a leader in fingerprint sensors with market proven leading edge performance in power consumption that enables our solution to be battery- and contactless,” explained Philippe Dubois, General Manager of Payment at NXP Semiconductors.

Just last week, ABI Research published a new analyst report titled “Next-generation Powered Payment Card Technologies”, which forecasted that 213 million powered payment cards will ship in 2022. This number is made up of a combination of DCV cards, biometric sensor cards and other interactive powered payment card form factors, a huge increase from the 260,000 expected to be delivered by the end of 2017.

Fingerprint Cards will be conducting a ‘Technology Update’ webcast tomorrow at 14:00 CET.
