Synaptics fingerprint authentication to be integrated with AMD Ryzen and Microsoft biometric OS

Synaptics fingerprint authentication to be integrated with AMD Ryzen and Microsoft biometric OS
 

Synaptics and AMD have announced a joint initiative to deliver highly secure fingerprint authentication for enterprise, commercial and consumer notebook PCs based on AMD’s Ryzen Mobile platform and Microsoft’s forthcoming next-generation biometric security operating system, which includes Windows Hello.

Fingerprint authentication will be provided by Synaptics’ FS7600 Match-in-Sensor technology, which isolates fingerprint image enrollment, pattern storage, and biometric matching within the sensor with a System-on-Chip (SoC) architecture, for what the company says is best-in-class protection against on-device threats.

“With the growing adoption of fingerprint sensors on notebook PCs across both business and consumer platforms, there has never been a more critical time to broadly implement very strong biometric authentication to protect enterprises and enable secure consumer mobile payments against deviant black hat hackers,” says Synaptics PC Division and Corporate Marketing Corporate Vice President Godfrey Cheng. “Synaptics’ FS7600 Match-in-Sensor SoC is the industry’s most secure fingerprint solution to protect against these threats.”

“At AMD, security is a top priority,” says AMD Client Compute Business Unit Corporate Vice President and General Manager Saeid Moshkelani. “As part of our ongoing commitment, hardened biometric security is a critical requirement for our next-generation Ryzen Mobile platforms.”

The collaboration marks the first major integration for the FS7600, which Synaptics announced had reached production-readiness in June. Reports since then have suggested that Synaptics could soon be acquired by Dialog Semiconductor.
