NEXT Biometrics’ sensors to be integrated in TYSSO POS devices for the US market
NEXT Biometrics has received a new purchase order for fingerprint sensors from point-of-sale terminal maker TYSSO (Fametech Inc.), to be integrated in mobile POS devices for the U.S. market.
The deal marks the second POS customer added by NEXT in recent weeks, after China-based Telpo placed an order for the Indian market. NEXT says biometric POS terminals are expected to grow in number faster than other POS devices in the coming years.
“I’m extremely pleased NEXT sensor technology has again been chosen to meet customer demand for biometric point-of-sale terminals,” said Ritu Favre, CEO NEXT Biometrics. “This show of support from TYSSO is evidence of the value NEXT’s large-area fingerprint sensors are delivering to the market. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with the team at TYSSO.”
TYSSO, which is based in Taiwan, selected the large-area NB 2023 sensor modules for the outstanding biometric performance of NEXT sensors, which a recent report from Carlos III University of Madrid (UC3M) attests to, and the company’s proven record as a volume supplier of biometric sensor modules, according to the announcement.
“We chose NEXT to supply fingerprint sensors for our POS product lines for a number of reasons, but performance and reliability were the key differentiators,” said Louis Wong, TYSSO General Manager. “Our customers are extremely demanding, so we required a proven supplier like NEXT to help ensure our success in the U.S. market.”
