Fujitsu selects NEXT Biometrics fingerprint sensors for notebooks and tablets
Fujitsu Client Computing Limited has implemented NEXT Biometrics fingerprint sensors in consumer and commercial notebook and tablet products.
NEXT has delivered the initial volumes and expects the volumes to increase over the coming months.
“Fujitsu’s extensive testing regime has yet again confirmed the fundamental importance of sensor size,” remarked Ritu Favre, CEO of NEXT Biometrics. “Suppliers targeting to offer security and convenience for close to 100% of a population simply cannot compromise on size.”
“After extensive testing of a range of sensors, Fujitsu has for both its consumer and commercial PC products chosen NEXT as its sensor supplier,” added Kenichi Fujii, VP of Commercial Mobile Business Division of Fujitsu Client Computing Limited. “Implementing larger sensors, Fujitsu will provide end users with a better user experience at uncompromised security levels.”
Yesterday, NEXT revealed that it has begun mass production shipments of its NB-2034-S2 sensor module, designed for the notebook, tablet and access control markets.
