Fingerprint Cards announces partnership with Linxens
Fingerprint Cards has announced a partnership with Linxens, a designer and manufacturer of microconnectors for smartcards and RFID antennas.
The partnership, targeted towards card manufacturers, will see Fingerprint Cards providing its T-Shape sensor module for Linxens’ contactless fingerprint-on-card Prelam.
According to a company statement, Linxens’ Prelam technology integrates and connects all the functional components of a smartcard and can be converted into finished cards by means of standard smartcard machinery and processes. As well, Linxens’ tape technology makes the fingerprint sensor fully compatible with the smartcard industry’s requirements.
“Collaboration is key in the smartcard ecosystem,” explains Thomas Rex, SVP, Business Line Smartcards, at Fingerprint Cards. “Linxens is a leading provider in the smartcard arena and this partnership means that we will be advancing in this market together to offer a truly integrated and scalable solution for smartcard manufacturers of next generation payment cards.”
