Precise Biometrics upgrades its fingerprint solution for smart cards
Precise Biometrics has upgraded its market-leading fingerprint solution for smart cards.
In an effort to lower total product costs, Precise BioMatch Embedded now supports even smaller fingerprint sensors with an area down to 30 mm2 and constrained MCU’s that enable power efficient biometric smart cards, while meeting the biometric performance requirements set by the payment card industry.
In addition to supporting even smaller fingerprint sensors, Precise BioMatch Embedded offers the highest security in fingerprint authentication by addressing both biometric performance as well as storing and matching fingerprint templates in the existing Embedded Secure Element (eSE) of the card.
“The combination of contactless payment and fingerprint authentication brings a new level of convenience to consumers and minimizes the risk of identity theft and fraud. With an annual addressable market of more than two billion payment cards, contactless biometric payment cards have the potential to become the next major growth market for fingerprint technology,” said Håkan Persson, CEO of Precise Biometrics.
The software solution will be available for customers in December 2017.
