Card manufacturers place orders for Fingerprint Cards T-shape modules
Fingerprint Cards has announced that two major global card manufacturers have placed initial orders for its T-shape module for dual interface payment cards.
The module is part of the ultra-thin FPC1300 series, which features low power consumption to meet the requirements of contactless transactions, according to the company.
“This is a minor volume, but an important milestone for us, and shows that we are on the right track towards commercializing our smartcard offer,” says Fingerprint Cards SVP of Business Line Smartcards Thomas Rex.
The Swedish biometrics company recently announced a partnership with Card Tech to integrate the T-shape module with modular electronic layer for use in dual interface biometric smart cards for the financial market.
Fingerprint Cards is also in the midst of several changes to its executive management.
