FPC sensor in CardLab cards
According to a statement from Fingerprint Cards, the T-Shape sensor module design is optimized for integration into smart cards. It is designed to pass the ISO standards for smart cards, and pre-qualification shows compliance with tough Card Quality Management (CQM) requirements, using the same design as billions of ISO pad production already use today. The T-Shape module is distributed on an industry standard delivery format, making it easy to integrate using existing infrastructure and machinery and resulting in a lower total card cost. The module has a small footprint, is ultra-thin and excells in contactless power harvesting.
In February 2017, CardLab was granted support from the EU Commission under the Horizon 2020 program with the scope to embed a fingerprint sensor solution in all card types to enhance security for eBanking, eCommerce, eGovernment, payment, access and ID card solutions. The card solutions CardLab has prepared are compliant with the new data protection regulations and fully protect the personal identity as biometric data are stored in the card only and not in databases.
“We are pleased to work with Fingerprints as they have been very perceptive to CardLab input in their work towards developing a sensor that can be easily embedded in volume production,” explained Frank Sandelöv, CEO Cardlab Aps. “Fingerprints new unique T-Shape sensor and CardLab experience and knowhow in designing Powered Cards is a perfect combination and will benefit not just CardLab but the Card sector in general now being able to integrate another layer of security in volume production.”
“That CardLab has chosen to use our T-Shape™ module in their reference design is an evidence that the T-Shape™ sensor fits the market requirements and we are pleased to work together. This is a proof of our efforts meeting not only the demands of production processes but also demands in terms of security and ease of use,” commented Thomas Rex, SVP Business Line Smart Cards at Fingerprints.
