Crossmatch surpasses 750000 biometric units sold in India


Crossmatch has surpassed 750,000 units sold of its U.are.U and TouchChip fingerprint products in India through its partner AqTronics Technologies and affiliates.

The silicon optical single finger readers, modules, and sensors feature 500 ppi capture, to provide fast, accurate matching performance with the highest commercial resolution, making it effective for Aadhaar applications serving even very young or old customers, according to the announcement. Fingerprints were also originally enrolled in Aadhaar at 500 ppi, as mandated by the Standardization Testing and Quality Certification (STQC).

Crossmatch was awarded L0 – Registered Device certification in September, 2017, and is currently in the process for UIDAI Biometric Authentication Devices – Registered Device certification with its TCS1 line of biometric readers, modules, and sensors. Registered Device certification refers to compatibility with Aadhaar encryption key management, and the L1 certification is mandated for use by all Aadhaar authentication ecosystem partners.

“India represents an important market for the company,” noted John Hinmon, marketing lead for Crossmatch. “Through our valued local partners and distributors, the U.are.U and TouchChip lines are sold for use in a wide range of applications, including secure transaction authentication, supported by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) Aadhaar program.”

TouchChip products include touch and swipe sensor configurations, a chipset model for matching on the device, and surface coating available to increase durability in high-volume or harsh environmental conditions. Devices in the U.are.U line are easy to use and offered at economical price points, the company says. U.are.U fingerprint readers were also recently deployed by a U.S. restaurant chain to reduce fraud.

Crossmatch estimates that its biometric modules are embedded in roughly half of the market’s fingerprint-enabled point-of-sales devices.
