Fingerprint Cards AB launches fourth-generation fingerprint sensor
Fingerprint Cards (FingerprintsTM) launches FPC1511, next generation fingerprint sensor for Smartphones, designed to enable easy integration of fingerprint sensors in the smartphone market.
By launching the fourth-generation fingerprint sensor FPC1511, previously referred to in the company's Q1 2018 earnings announcement, Fingerprints will enable smartphone manufacturers to integrate a single-chip fingerprint sensor with excellent performance for secure and convenient user authentication. The new sensor is a further evolution of third-generation sensors, offering optimized silicon production layers. FPC1511 is currently Fingerprints' most cost-optimized solution for smartphone manufacturers. 3D enabled hardware and perpetual algorithm development results in world-leading biometric performance for fingerprints sensors, even with a smaller surface area.
Ted Hansson, SVP BL Mobile at Fingerprints, comments: "FPC1511 is a groundbreaking fingerprint sensor with a very attractive size, suitable for a rectangular home button as well as for square or round backside sensors. We believe it will substantially increase the market penetration of fingerprint sensors in smartphones in 2019, due to its excellent biometric performance and cost-optimized design. Smartphone manufacturers will now be able to offer consumers convenient and secure biometric authentication in all smartphone models in the customers' product portfolio." says Ted Hansson.
FPC1511 has undergone extensive testing and verification, and prototypes are available for smartphone manufacturers in collaboration with leading module manufacturers. Full qualification of FPC1511 is scheduled for the third quarter of 2018, and the first commercial smartphones integrating FPC1511 are expected to be launched in late 2018 or early 2019.
