Next Biometrics granted US PIV certification for FAP20 sensor module



Next Biometrics has been granted Personal Identity Verification (PIV) certification in the United States for its new biometric module based on the large-size FAP20 sensor, according to a company announcement.

The PIV certificate is a United Sates federal government issued credential which requires approval from the FBI. Next’s FAP20 module (One Touch 2000) has been certified by the FBI as tested and in compliance with the FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) Image Quality Specifications (IQS). The review of the test data was conducted by the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division.

“This is yet another major milestone for Next,” says Next Biometrics CEO Peter Heuman. “The PIV certification is a highly sought-after accreditation important for customers within global government ID, Notebook and Access-Control markets. Our FAP20 sensors already generate market interest from customers seeking to benefit from the large-size sensor performance and thin form factor.”

Heuman took over as Next’s CEO in September.
