NEXT Biometrics strikes deal to provide fingerprint sensors for POS devices in India


NEXT Biometrics has received an order for fingerprint sensor modules from China-based point-of-sale (POS) maker Telpo (Telepower Communication Co. Ltd.) to be integrated into devices for the Indian market.

Initial shipments to the new NEXT customer are expected later this quarter, with volumes potentially reaching several hundred thousand units in future quarters.

“NEXT continues to see increased demand for our large-area fingerprint sensor technology from leading companies around the world for a broad set of applications,” said Ritu Favre, CEO NEXT Biometrics. “The security and convenience provided by NEXT’s sensor modules make them an ideal solution for the type of handheld point-of-sale terminals Telpo has developed.”

The sensors are certified by India’s government, and will be built into the Telpo TPS900 POS terminal, which will be offered to a range of customers, and are expected to be primarily used for government applications.

“Telpo’s design strengths and outstanding production capabilities are a good complement to NEXT’s unique fingerprint sensor technology and background as a proven supplier,” said Sunny Sun, general manager International Business, Telpo. “The use of biometric POS terminals in India is expected to grow significantly and we believe we have the right products and technologies to capture that growth moving forward.”

NEXT also announced this week that its large-area fingerprint sensors are being used in three new biometric system-on-card pilots in Asia.
