Mobile device from SIC with Integrated Biometrics sensor among debuts at Connect:ID


Hardware maker SIC Biometrics is launching its new mobile Live-scan FAP 50 device, powered by a Five-O FBI-certified fingerprint sensor from Integrated Biometrics, at the upcoming Connect:ID Conference and Exhibition 2019, in one of several new biometrics demonstrations at the event.

The IdentiFi-50 replaces SIC’s IdentiFi-45 G2 device, which the company says was deployed for banking and law enforcement applications. The new device uses fast and secure Wi-Fi communication, fits in a pocket, and is compatible with iOS, Android, and Windows operating systems, according to the announcement. It features multiple security layers and allows users to see fingerprints being captured at 5 frames per second on mobile devices or computers. The device also functions in temperatures from 14 to 131 degrees Fahrenheit, meets MIL-STD-810 ruggedness specifications, and is IP 65-rated for dust protection.

IdentiFi-50 can capture fingerprints continuously for 8 hours with SIC smart power management, the battery lasts for two weeks, and it can be ready to capture prints in five seconds, the company says. SIC provides APIs to run IdentiFi products with the SIC Biometrics SDK suite to enable fast proof-of-concept development and integration.

“The IdentiFI-50 is the result of 20 years of innovations by SIC Biometric and the collaboration of key US and European organizations,” states SIC Biometrics CEO Eric Talbot. “I thank our great partner ecosystem, suppliers and the SIC Biometrics team for their contribution, determination and continued support for bringing to market this high-performance and unique product.”

Suprema announces Android compatibility

Suprema ID has announced Android support for its RealScan-G10 and RealScan-D series fingerprint scanners, and will demonstrate the new compatibility at Connect:ID.

The new Android solution addresses increasing demand for mobile fingerprinting and the challenge of limited power supply for outdoor uses, the company says. It also supports core technologies like Machine Learning Live Fingerprint Detection and Multi Dynamic Range without compromising on enrollment performance.

SecuGen says new programmable fingerprint module is world’s smallest

SecuGen is launching an ultra-slim fingerprint sensor module it says is the world’s smallest such programmable module at Connect:ID. The U10-SF is designed to enable OEMs and developers to embed biometrics into a wide variety of hardware products.

The device can store up to 20,000 fingerprint templates or 10,000 users, and is preloaded with SecuGen’s Fingerprint Management System for image capture, template extraction, enrolment, search, and matching on one device out of the box. It is FBI-certified for FIPS 201 PIV and Mobile ID FAP 10 applications, with NIST MINEX-compliant template extraction and matching algorithms, according to the announcement.

The U10 optical fingerprint sensor is the core of the module, which also features a Single Board Computer with a 1 GHz CPU, a fully programmable Linux system, SecuGen’s biometric matching SDK, and OpenSSL cryptographic libraries.

“The U10-SF optical fingerprint sensor module is the culmination of a multi-year development process,” comments SecuGen VP of Sales and Marketing Jeff Brown. “One strand of that process was to reduce the size of the sensor to our smallest ever. The second strand of the process was to merge a Single Board Computer with the fingerprint sensor module and embed an open Linux development environment, making this product unique in the industry. Combining all of this with its low price and astonishingly small size is a major breakthrough.”

AMREL launches light-weight biometric tablet

AMREL will bring its new BioSense AT80 MAX tablet, which it says is the world’s lightest integrated FAP 50 mobile biometric device, to Connect:ID, along with the BioSense AT80B and BIOPTIX FAP 20 tablets.

The BioSense AT80 MAX is an 8-inch Android tablet equipped with a Five-O Light Emitting Sensor from IB, like the SIC device. It resists dirt, cold, heat, bright lights and sunlight, and is not affected by latent prints, the company says. The device meets PIV, GSA, and FIPS 201 standards, in addition to Mobile ID IQS FAP 50 image quality and IP 67 durability requirements.

“We have a great deal of experience in providing mobile biometric devices, but this is the first one that integrates an FBI Appendix F certified ten-finger (4-4-2) scanner that captures rolled and flat fingerprints,” explains AMREL VP of Operations Kalvin Chen. “Law-enforcement and security professionals that need mobility and accurate high-resolution fingerprint scans now have access to the most up-to-date biometric technology on a proven platform.”

The BioSense AT80B and the BIOPTIX 10.1-inch Windows tablet both feature Suprema ID’s BM-Slim2 optical fingerprint scanner, which provides a slim 500dpi sensor and state-of-the-art MINEX-certified fingerprint algorithm, according to a separate announcement.

“We will continue to identify and add new mobile ID solutions that align with the needs of government agencies and public safety markets,” says Chen. “Moreover, for customers with special requirements, we can help customize a solution from one of our standard computing platforms.”

Connect:ID 2019 will be held April 30 to May 1 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
