Fingerprint Cards adds capacitive touch sensors to biometric access control portfolio



Fingerprint Cards has added two capacitive touch sensors to its fingerprint authentication touch sensor portfolio, for physical and logical access to devices and applications.

The two capacitive touch sensors, FPC1020 and FPC1024, leverage high-tech biometric performance, are water resistant and deliver secure and seamless authentication through low power consumption, the company says.

“Our technology is used billions of times per day, and we have adapted our long and unrivaled experience from the mobile world into this sensor series tailored for the low-computing-power access environment,” says Thomas Rex, SVP BL Smartcard & Embedded at Fingerprint Cards. “With our extended access offering we are working to meet the demands of a range of new access control use cases.”

In other company news Fingerprint Cards’ partner Thales noted in a tweet that its contactless biometric payment card has been certified by Mastercard. Fingerprint Cards’ T-Shape sensor module and biometric software platform for payments are integrated in the card.

At the end of 2019, Fingerprint Cards reported staggering progress in the mass commercialization of biometric payment cards. At that time, there were 20 pilots of contactless biometric payment cards around the world using FPC technology in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Japan.
