SecuGen rolls out its smallest sensor to date


SecuGen announced the release of the Hamster Pro 10 and U10 sensor. Both the Hamster Pro 10 and the U10 sensor inside of it are FBI certified for PIV and Mobile ID FAP 10 applications.

The Hamster Pro 10 features the U10 sensor and is supported by SecuGen’s free SDKs that operate on Windows, Linux, and Android. The U10 sensor is SecuGen’s smallest sensor to date measuring only 13 mm thick and is based on patented technologies. According to the announcement, the U10 sensor is suitable for embedding into virtually any device including laptops, ATMs, access control machines, and even small hand-held devices.

The ultra-slim Hamster Pro 10 itself is very compact and economically priced for large scale deployments. This new fingerprint reader joins SecuGen’s portfolio of rugged USB fingerprint readers that include the Hamster Pro as well as the company’s flagship Hamster Pro 20.

“Since we started the company 20 years ago, we have been pushing optical fingerprint technology to its limits by making the sensor smaller and smaller while maintaining high image quality,” satated Dan Riley, VP of Engineering for SecuGen. “With the U10 sensor, we have reached a critical milestone. This new sensor is small enough to be embedded into a laptop or hand-held device. Our team has done a masterful job with these products.”

SecuGen will showcase the Hamster Pro 10 and U10 at ISC West next week in Las Vegas.
