SecuGen to feature its U10 optical fingerprint sensor at CES 2019


SecuGen announced today it will be showcasing the U10 optical fingerprint sensor at the January 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

According to the announcement, the less than 13 millimeters thin U10 fingerprint sensor module is the world’s smallest FBI-certified FAP 10 optical fingerprint sensor. The U10 module is designed to be embedded into nearly any type of hardware device to increase security and authenticate users and is easy to integrate using SecuGen’s suite of free SDKs for Window, Android and Linux.

The U10 is the same sensor used inside of SecuGen’s Hamster Pro 10 fingerprint reader.

“Our OEM customers have long requested that we make a thinner sensor,” explains Jeff Brown, VP of sales and marketing for SecuGen. “Our engineers were able to make some remarkable breakthroughs. The U10 is the thinnest FBI certified optical fingerprint sensor module in the world today. This makes it, from both a size and quality prospective, ideal for integration into a wide variety of products. We already are working with ATM, POS and handheld vendors.”

“We continue to expand and enhance our product line in response to the wishes of our partners,” added Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen. “Our strategy is, and has always been, to innovate, design, and deliver products that can help our partners succeed in the marketplace. We are always listening very carefully to what they have to say. The U10 continues this focus.”
