Fingerprint Cards releases biometric authentication module for access control



Fingerprint Cards has introduced a plug and play biometric sensor module to authenticate fingerprints and enable access to smart door locks, padlocks, FIDO tokens, and crypto wallets, among other applications, the company announced.

Dubbed FPC BM-Lite, the new product is a standalone biometric system that integrates hardware, software and an algorithm, and that can be adjusted to any physical and logical device or application that requires a secure and easy user authentication process, the company explains. It provides best-in-class power consumption, unique features for a better user experience, and a built-in processor completes biometric calculations within a fraction of a second, according to the announcement.

“IoT is connecting the world around us, so the ways we access our homes and digital services need to keep up,” comments Thomas Rex, SVP BL Smartcards, Automotive and Embedded at Fingerprint Cards. “As the number of connected devices is growing, the need for seamless and secure access to devices and applications is essential to remove the hassle with PINs and passwords. The new module combines Fingerprints’ proven technology to make life simple for device makers and end users – a perfect example of how biometrics can make things genius.”

Just last month, Fingerprint Cards released a touchless authentication platform dubbed ‘Touchless 2.0’ that integrates biometric facial and iris recognition to enhance security and usability for mobile and IoT OEMs.
