Fingerprint Cards strengthens partnership with Infineon to develop biometric authentication
Biometric sensor firm Fingerprint Cards is now a Premium Partner of semiconductor manufacturer Infineon Technologies, says a release touting the two companies’ ongoing “collaboration, development and innovation in bringing biometric technologies for authentication into payments, broader IoT (Internet of Things) applications and beyond.”
“Deeper collaboration with Infineon and its partners will help us bring stronger, more convenient authentication to a broader range of applications to make our lives simpler, and safer,” says Michel Roig, President of Payment & Access at Fingerprint Cards. “We will focus on driving innovation in current and future production lines, including access control, payment cards and other applications within the high-security ecosystem.”
FPC, which as of last year has shipped more than 1.5 billion biometric sensors, joins other companies in the Infineon Partner Ecosystem, which connects specialized engineering companies that the release says must demonstrate “a proven availability designing solutions and services corresponding to the needs of the market and customer.”
“Biometrics can be a trusted link between the physical and digital worlds to help us unleash the full potential of digitization,” says Tolgahan Yildiz, VP of Trusted Mobile Connectivity & Transactions at Infineon Technologies AG. “Our partnership with Fingerprints will strengthen the collaboration and help ensure innovation and growth for trusted biometric solutions for years to come.
The two companies previously worked together on the joint development of Infineon’s Secora pay bio card.
