IDEX Biometrics today announced the receipt of a production order of biometric fingerprint sensors for payment cards. IDEX expects to start shipping against the order in the third quarter of 2018 and expects additional orders to follow.

“We are incredibly proud to have reached this very important milestone with our strategic partner,” commented Stan Swearingen, CEO of IDEX Biometrics. “The order marks the start of the industrialization phase for biometric cards, and is the result of years of dedication and hard work and is validation of IDEX’s leadership position in this very innovative market.”
